And what would merit that kind of high accolade? Agreeing with Thomas Friedman on Iraq, of course.
“Mr. Blair took a principled position to depose Saddam and keep Britain tightly aligned with America. He did so, among other reasons, because he believed that the advance of freedom and the defeat of fascism — whether Islamo-fascism or Nazi fascism — were quintessential and indispensable ‘liberal’ foreign policy goals.”
