The statement in general is remarkably arrogant and, dare I say it, out of control. What about the idea that so-called neocons actually believe in democracy in the Middle East? Not possible, Mr. Klein? It’s all legerdemain? Maybe we’ve got a little projection going on here.

Whatever one thinks about the neocons, they had virtually the only program, the only idea of how to right the world after 9/11. Conventional liberalism and conventional liberals had nothing to say. They still don’t.

That’s why they keep trying to change the subject.
