>From reading the article, it doesn't appear he's recognizing he made any mistakes anent this issue.  (Not defending Cheney; I don't believe he ever publicly blamed Saddam Hussein for the 2001 attacks, but I do believe he and his crew helped to foster the notion that Saddam was connected.)

And WW1 was a big mistake, IMO, no matter how you look at it.  I wonder if the Austro-Hungarians and their allies (and, heck, at least some of their enemies) knew the outcome if they'd have fought it regardless.
