Brzezinski and Me

CONTENTIONS readers might be interested in my exchange in the Washington Post with Zbigniew Brzezinski over the merits of a pullout from Iraq. His article is here and my reply is here. And, no, it’s not my fault that this article carries the same headline as a much longer article I did for COMMENTARY last August. Blame it on the Post editors, who may not read COMMENTARY quite as religiously as they should. Of course, even at roughly 950 words, my riposte does not begin to exhaust all the problems with Brzezinski’s reasoning. I’m sure this site’s readers will have plenty of other thoughts to offer.
