Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
To be fair, Scowcroft made his opposition to the Iraq adventure know quite some time ago; if I remember correctly, even before the war.

Scowcroft did voice his opposition, though mildly, several years ago. Notice he was not asked to be a part of this administration?

Share. Share resources, share delight, share burdens, share the healing. If we only could realize that sharing will bring us back from mass suicide.

For the record, Scowcroft has been on the record as opposing the Iraq debacle. Hat tip to Armando at Daily Kos:

Scowcroft did say it, in August 2002:

In August of 2002, seven months before George W. Bush launched the invasion of Iraq, Scowcroft upset the White House with an opinion piece in the Wall Street Journal. The headline read, "DON'T ATTACK SADDAM." Scowcroft would have preferred something more nuanced, he told me, but the words accurately reflected his message.

OK, so he could have said it louder. He could have endorsed and/or campaigned for Kerry.

Of course, the media could have reported it better, too.
