Bill Kristol is asked by a caller on Washington Journal whether himself, Fox News, The Weekly Standard or the any of the neo-con think tanks owe the American public an apology for hyping the WMD lies on Iraq. Of course Kristol doesn't think so, but then that would require some degree of introspection that I highly doubt the man is capable of for him to have answered differently. It also would require having something called a conscience, but I don't think Kristol has one of those either.

In his response he attempts to diminish the role these conservative think tanks and publications have had in pushing our government into going to war. Does anyone think that we would not have invaded Iraq had it not been for the influence PNAC, AEI and the rest of them had over our elected offials? He also does not address at all the role the "news" networks played in getting us into that debacle.
