Bush vindicated

I may have missed something, but Fareed Zakariah's essay in Newsweek, 14 March of this years seems almost a reversal of his previous writings. He seems now to have become an apologist for Mr Bush and those optimists who promote their vision of a democratic Iraq.

"Bush never accepted the view that Islamic terrorism had its roots in religion or culture or the Arab-Israeli conflict. Instead, he veered toward the analysis that the region was breeding terror because it had developed deep dysfunctions caused by decades of repression and an almost toal lack of political, economic, an dsocial modernization...."

Let's hope for the sake of reform in the Arab world that Mr. Zakariah and the President are right on this.
