Rich Lowry interview

Rich Lowry certainly lives in his own world. He seems to fall in line with all the other neo-con chicken-hawk types who think we need to be in the middle east "giving" the Afghans, Iraqi's, etc., their freedom. He doesn't mention how his hero, George Bush, lied to us and got us into Iraq for nothing. Maybe Mr. Lowry should volunteer for Afghansitan and aid the cause he believes in. After all, Afghanistan is once again becoming a hot-bed of insurgency, since Mr. Bush didn't stay and finish the job he should have right after 9/11. A very typical right-wing view of the world. Hasn't anyone learned anything after 8 yrs of Bush & Cheney?
