THE LIBERATED KURDS: A terrific story that's way more important than its limited play in the press would suggest: we've destroyed an Iraq-al Qaeda connection, and freed people who were oppressed, Taliban-style, by these terrorists.

I argued in October that the administration should emphasize the al Qaeda connection in making the case for an Iraq war. Had they done that, and thus invaded on defensive grounds (as in Afghanistan), lots of headaches could have been saved (especially if they had skipped the UN, as I probably assumed they would when, in the afore-linked post when, I said that war was near).
