Follow-up to " The Iraq War Debacle Was Truly a Debacle For Some"

One implication of Michael Schwartz' article, Iraq: The broken pieces don't fit together, was that the quagmire in Iraq wasn't an accident, but rather was part of the design. In the process of discussing that article, I made reference to Naomi Klein's book, The Shock Doctrine. Well, thanks to the miracle of the Internet, there is an excerpt from her chapter on Iraq. I consider the book a must-read for any of a number of reasons - not the least of which is that Klein helps make some sense of what otherwise would be sheer nonsense when it comes to analyzing the consequences of the Iraq War.
