One of the more irritating things about the criticism of President Bush's Iraq policy is the overt dishonesty of the critics. KLO at the The Corner posts this:
“Mr. Bush said repeatedly that he went to the United Nations seeking a diplomatic alternative to war. In fact, the United States rejected all diplomatic alternatives at the time, severely damaging relations with some of its most important and loyal allies.”
--New York Times editorial; February 9, 2004
“Yesterday's unanimous vote at the United Nations Security Council sends the strongest possible message to Baghdad...This is a well-deserved triumph for President Bush, a tribute to eight weeks of patient but determined and coercive American diplomacy…Only if the council fails to approve the serious consequences it now invokes -- generally understood to be military measures -- should Washington consider acting alone.”
--New York Times editorial; November 9, 2002
Overt? Stupid might be a better word.
