The Democracy Goal

To continue my own personal Instapundit day, here is a useful compilation of the Bush administration’s pre-war talk of democratizing Iraq as a reason to go to war. It’s true that a lot of people on the left ignore this history in order to focus on where Bush turned out to be wrong. On the other hand, reading through these comments confirms to me that before the war, a democratic Iraq was a side benefit and not the central, compelling reason to go to war, which is how it gets painted today.
