3/20 John Judis: On The Eve of Destruction: Opposing The Iraq War From The Beginning

March 20, 2013

The New Republic’s John Judis, explained what it was like opposing the invasion of Iraq in 2003, why military and intelligence experts opposed the war, the dangers of a non-transparent intelligence apparatus, has the press learned any lessons from Iraq? and Judis reflected on whether Republicans can rebuild their party and he and Sam reviewed the ongoing media myth of a need for a “Grand Bargain.”

On The Better Half: a Libertarian caller debates Sam on vouchers, Fox New’s Eric Bolling has some almost poetically stupid things to say about Iraq, the union member who punched Fox News contributor Steven Crowder in the face was acting in self defense and your calls and IMs.

And keep the conversation going on the morning thread!
