The news yesterday about William Buckley saying that he wouldn’t have supported the war in Iraq if we ‘knew then what we know now’ surprised me. See, I never got the impression he supported the war in the first place. In fact, most of the stuff he wrote for National Review at the time was very ‘have we thought about this’, ‘what about this’ and never did I get the impression that he was Lowry-esque in his support. Am I wrong?
