Just caught the end of Bill Kristol on FoxNews. Kristol thinks that Bush is stringing along the “peace process” to get Saudi acquiescence to a US-led attack on Iraq.
Furthermore, he expects the attack to come sooner, rather than later — if only because there isn’t a whole lot of string to left in the process.
No matter what I think of Kristol personally (amoral, hypocritical weasel, to be exact), I think he’s on the money here. Mostly, because it makes a lot of sense, but partly because the alternative is too fearsome to comtemplate.
