For IPS and Antiwar.com:

“[S]ome of the neoconservatives former allies have publicly turned on them with a vengeance. Former Secretary of State Al Haig, a strong supporter of going to war in Iraq, shocked many here two weeks ago when he told a widely-viewed CNN Sunday talk show that the war had been “driven by the so-called neocons that hijacked my party.”

“He referred by name to Richard Perle of the American Enterprise Institute and the Pentagon’s Defense Policy Board and former Deputy Defense Secretary (now World Bank President) Paul Wolfowitz, as well as the editorial-page writers of the Wall Street Journal.”

Talk about a “heck of a note.”
