One sided debate

by Henry Farrell on January 11, 2006

The _Boston Review_ has posted a very interesting “forum”: where Barry Posen puts the realist case for getting out of Iraq, and various pundits and political types respond. The WWW version, however, is missing the introductory note from the print version of the forum, which closes with the following.

bq. Unfortunately, however, none of the proponents of the current policy whom we invited to respond – including several who have previously commented publicly on Posen’s views – were prepared to join the debate here. Suffice it to say that we sought a very broad range of opinion in the interests of moving policy forward, and we regret that proponents were unwilling to join in.

The decent left is too busy gloating about their miserable failure to attend. Perhaps the forum can be rescheduled after they deliver the Zamboni they sold Satan.

Surely Sebastian Holoclaw would have offered his opinion if asked?

Why would he wait to be asked?
