Michael Kelly and the War

In comments last week RBP asked about my opinion of Michael Kelly and his involvement in selling the Iraq war.

I've tried several times to comment about it and what I write never comes out with quite the right tone. I think that's true a lot of times when a political opponent dies who was not one of the Bad Guys. I would never write a Thompson-style Nixon obit for a guy like Kelly.

At the same time, I have nothing nice to say about the man. I wish he hadn't died in the Iraq war, but then, I wish that about a lot of people. I think it's best to leave it at that.

Right, I was curious what you thought and meant no disrespect for the man either.
