Wolfowitz under Fire

Spencer Ackerman responded to Paul Wolfowitz's testimony yesterday by posting the following two excerpts (1 and 2) on his blog on The New Republic Online.

The excerpts are previous statements made by Wolfowitz regarding Saddam and the Iraq war.

If they had just finished this business in 1991, how much better off we'd all be. Speaking of which, according to Kanaan Makiya (I will find the exact reference and post it), Paul Wolfowitz was the only person after the abandonment of Iraq in '91 who came up to Makiya (not having met him before) at a talk of his, and apologized for leaving the Iraqi people under the mercy of that brutal tyrant after the first Gulf War.
