Daniel Henninger tracked down former Secretary of State George Shultz for an interview at Shultz’s apartment in San Francisco. Shultz had sent Henninger a speech on the basis of which Henninger suggests that Shultz is the “father of the Bush Doctrine.” According to Henninger, it was Shultz who introduced Condoleezza Rice to President Bush in 1998. In light of Secretary Rice’s recent comments on Iran, Bill Kristol argues in the editorial for the new issue of the Weekly Standard that the Bush Doctrine is dead in “[m]uch of the U.S. government[.]” Both Henninger’s interview and Kristol’s column were published yesterday.
