Right But Poor

From the purely professional perspective, a particularly annoying (as opposed to depressing, horrifying or enraging) aspect of the Iraq war is the fact that the people who were right about the war are still considered crazy, out-of-the-mainstream lefties, while the establishment pundits who supported it are still being listend to, and in the case of Frederick Kagan, actually crafting policy. Well, Jebediah Reed has a fanatastic piece over at Radar magazine showing that from the perspective of professional status and paycheck, having gotten Iraq wrong is paying way better dividends than having gotten it right.
