“When President Bush addresses the nation tomorrow night, the strategies he offers for Iraq will represent months of work by J.D. Crouch, an academic turned deputy national security adviser,” Yochi J. Dreazen writes.
“Diplomacy in Pyongyang without military power is appeasement plain and simple,” Crouch wrote in 1995.
