no rant today…

…rant tomorrow. Meanwhile, with thanks to Heather Havrilsky:

“The threat to the free nations of southeast Asia has long been clear

— President Lyndon B. Johnson, Aug. 5, 1964

“Saddam Hussein is a threat to our nation … I think the threat is
real, and so do a lot of other people in my government. And since I
believe the threat is real, and since my most important job is to
protect the security of the American people, that’s precisely what
we’ll do.”

— President George W. Bush, March 6, 2003

“It’s naive and even irresponsible for a grown-up today to get her or
his information about foreign policy and war and peace exclusively
from the administration in power.”

— Daniel Ellsberg, Salon, Nov. 19, 2002
