Quote of the Day: the Iraq Study Group

National Review's Rich Lowry, who pulled yeoman's work reading through the entire report, notes that page 51 of the report lists Libya "as an example of a rogue state we constructively engaged." He continues:
But Libya played ball with us for a very important reason: it was frightened. Unless and until Syria and Iran think there is some serious downside to defying us, they will keep doing it, whether we try to talk to them or not.
I agree, and find nothing to indicate that either Syria or Iran think they have anything to worry about.
