He's also the Queen of Hearts and the awesomist member of Manudo!

In case you wondered whether he is not only allowed out in polite society...but also unaffected:
Paul Wolfowitz, a former senior George W. Bush administration official and one of the chief Iraq War architects, said on Tuesday that the U.S. "won" the war in Iraq. When asked his thoughts about the current situation in Iraq and whether the war was a mistake, Wolfowitz replied, "We have won it — in 2009." The Bush administration’s troop surge in Iraq in 2007 and a moderate Sunni movement against al Qaeda extremists helped quell sectarian violence throughout the country. The U.S. began to draw down combat troops in 2009.
In a room full of people worried about Ebola it figures Paul Wolfowitz is still the deadliest pathogen in the room. [cross-posted at Firedoglake]

The classic "declare victory" dodge..
History will not treat this jackass kindly, assuming there is any history after 2100.

I suppose this is where we're supposed to forget that "sectarian violence" dropped off because all the ethnic cleansing had finished.

You know, the ethnic cleansing under our benevolent rule. Because we can look the other way when it's brown people.

OK, so we "won" in 2009...that's still six years longer and at a cost in lives and money so above and beyond Comb Boy's original estimate that it makes pretty much anything he says ridiculous.
