Two comments: 1) Korb is now an analyst at John Podesta’s new think tank, which is supposed to generate bold new election-winning ideas for the Democrats. His position on Iraq? He thinks the war was a mistake, and he pretty clearly suggests that the Gulf War of 1991 was a mistake too. We are supposed to think that the world would be a better place if the only response to Saddam Hussein’s conquest of Kuwait had been sanctions. 2) No matter what else in life Korb does–join Howard Dean’s presidential campaign, lead rallies with Ramsey Clark, become a liberal talk-radio host–he will always be memorialized in op-ed bio lines as a sub-Cabinet official in the Reagan administration.
