Jim Dwyer gets Kerik right in one sentence

Mr. Kerik has had one major role in the life of modern America: On behalf of President Bush, he used grief for the innocent dead of Sept. 11 as a justification for invading Iraq —a country whose people, and leaders, were innocent of involvement in the attacks.

From a column about Kerik's indictment that appeared in The New York Times two weeks ago. The only thing I would add to this assessment is that several other names could be substituted for that of Kerik (e.g., Cheney, Rumsfeld, Wolfowitz, Perle, Bolton, Rove, Rice, etc.) without altering the truth of the statement.
