"Occupation Boosterism"

Jon Sawyer, Pulitzer Center

The New York Times op ed "A War We Just Might Win" (July 30, 2007) by Brookings Institution scholars Kenneth Pollack and Michael O'Hanlon has occasioned much comment, most of it sparked by the chutzpah of two noted champions of the war describing themselves as "two analysts who have harshly criticized the Bush administration's miserable handling of Iraq."

By the time the war ended in 1992, Gorongosa was a wasted, abandoned, empty place – yet another African casualty in a century filled with tragedies.
