Occasionally SWNID labels certain opinion/analysis pieces on the web as must-reads. Today, we make that designation emphatically. This is the Mother of all Must-Reads, the Mustest Readest of All.
Gentle readers, if you do not follow the link to William Stuntz's article on the Iraq War in the New Republic, consider yourself no longer a gentle reader. You are not welcome on this blog if you don't follow the link. Fail to click and read, and you can no longer read SWNID. Period.
Stuntz's analysis is the most penetrating morally and historically that SWNID has encountered to date. What makes it all the more remarkable is the New Republic's avowedly liberal editorial slant. And more remarkable still, Stuntz is a professor at Harvard Law School.
