Through The Looking Glass--And Back

The Wall Street Journal debunks a number of myths about Iraq and its liberation, and concludes:

These, then, are the urban legends we must counter, else falsehoods become conventional wisdom. And what a strange world it is: For many antiwar critics, the president is faulted for the war, and he, not the former dictator of Iraq, inspires rage. The liberator rather than the oppressor provokes hatred. It is as if we have stepped through the political looking glass, into a world turned upside down and inside out.

Another Update: Hugh Hewitt suggests this piece by Ralph Peters as a follow-up read after the Journal article.
