Chris Hayes on the Return of the Neocons

Continuing the coverage of the coverage: Once again, the US news media turns to those who led the US into the Iraq debacle for advice and commentary on the current escalating violence in that country…

You can find Tony Blair’s piece (mentioned in the clip) here; and BBC’s coverage of Boris Johnson’s response here.

Blair’s piece seems to be arguing along the lines of, “Consider the reasons we went into Iraq. Is the situation in Syria not similar if not worse? Ergo, we should invade that country, too. Regardless of the fact that it will be costly, dangerous, and unpopular.” That’s a considerable paraphrasing, given the rambling, over-long nature of the former-Prime Minister’s article.

Chris Matthews also covered the return of the Neocons…
