"VDH forgets he wanted to bomb Iran."
Writing at the Corner today, Hoover Institution senior fellow Victor Davis Hanson — who was recently given a National Humanities Medal by President Bush — tried to claim that he has long cautioned against bombing Iran. Unfortunately for Hanson, he was saying something quite different in August:
“I have written too much about why it is a bad idea to bomb Iran now.” — Victor Davis Hanson, 12/5/2007
“We really need to start doing some things beyond talking, and if that is going into Iranian airspace, or buzzing Iranians, or even starting to forget where the border is and taking out some of these training camps.” — Victor Davis Hanson, 8/13/2007
