Matt Yglesias announces the institution of Krauthammer Friday
Charles Krauthammer’s columns are published on Fridays. Thus, I hereby proclaim a new recurring feature—the second Friday of every month, we’ll revisit the man’s January 18, 2006 column, “The Iran Charade, Part II” in which he confidently proclaimed—contrary to the judgment of every relevant intelligence agency—that “Iran is probably just months away” from a nuclear bomb.
But even better, to my mind, was Krauthammer’s confident judgement on Iraq WMDs back in April 2003.
Hans Blix had five months to find weapons. He found nothing. We’ve had five weeks. Come back to me in five months. If we haven’t found any, we will have a credibility problem.
