McNamara speaks out: Excellent interview with Robert McNamara with explicit reference to Iraq.  "The United States is today the strongest power in the world, politically, economically and militarily, and I think it will continue to be so for decades ahead, if not for the whole century," he told me. "But I do not believe, with one qualification, that it should ever, ever use that power unilaterally -- the one qualification being the unlikely event we had to use it to defend the continental U.S., Alaska or Hawaii."  Article contains a list of his lessons from Vietnam, just as relevant today.  9:49:01 AM  permalink
