Richard Cohen's Head: A Hole in Which Hopes Are Buried

Those of us who once advocated this war are humbled. It's not just that we grossly underestimated the enemy. We vastly overestimated the Bush administration.

This is Richard Cohen's first half-hearted stab at an apology.

The ugly emptiness will remind us always to be wary of the grand schemes of politicians. They can't build a building. They cannot capture a mass murderer. They cannot wage war in Iraq. This is their hole. It is, by dint of failure, George Bush's presidential library. His proper legacy is a void.

...which is what the rest of us have been saying all along.
