Escalation mastermind Fred Kagan, on 'mixed results' in Iraq:
We can argue about statistics, but at the end of the day, that argument is not going to get us anywhere right now.Sure, we can talk all we want about facts and shit, but what's the use of that?
The extraordinary thing about this is how not extraordinary it is. Kagan's casual dismissal of fact-based discussion is so routine on the right that it hardly merits comment anymore.
Now that's depressing.
