This piece by James Robbins

This piece by James Robbins compares President Bush’s speech to a prosecutor’s closing argument in a jury trial. The analogy is useful and prompts the question, what would the “defense’s” closing argument sound like. I’m not talking about the kind of carping questions that I heard following the speech (“why now” and “what happens after”), but a real full-blown argument, of a seriousness comparable to the President’s, against taking military action in the near future. Maybe we’ll hear it when Senator Wellstone speaks in the Senate. But, to paraphrase Tom Daschle, so far the opponents of military action haven’t made their case.
