Prescience from the Right

Pat Buchanan has just published a book condemning the invasion of Iraq (In a New Book, Buchanan Chastises Another Bush). In it he quotes himself as saying, during the 2000 campaign, "Have we not suffered enough - from Pan Am 103 to the World Trade Center [bombing of 1993] to the embassy bombings in Nairobi and Dar es Salaam - not to know that interventionism is the incubator of terrorism? Or will it take some cataclysmic atrocity on U.S. soil to awaken our global gamesmen to the going price of empire?"
