The decline of Commentary

Some guy named Pete Wehner who used to flak for President Bush attacks me on Commentary's site today. I used to read Commentary quite a lot, and actually remember when its authors read the books they criticized! Lazy Wehner clearly hasn't. I get the impression that he doesn't know much about Iraq. Here is Joe Klein's response.

The odd thing about Wehner is that he must think he is supporting the military by tearing me down. I just was looking this morning at a note from an Army major who passed along that my new book is mandatory pre-deployment reading in his unit.

An apology to my readers

It turns out there was a "pop3" gremlin in my CNAS e-mail system that stopped most of the e-mail I have sent in response to readers from actually being sent. I think we have fixed the problem. I apologize to those of you who must have thought I had ignored your notes. I am not that rude!
