It appears that the last Syrian troops in Lebanon will leave tomorrow. It isn’t clear how reliable these reports are, but the withdrawal evidently includes Syrian intelligence.
This is a remarkable development that must be attributed, at least in part, to the neocons’ conviction that bringing liberty to the Middle East would pay dividends in ways that we can’t predict. Congratulations to President Bush, Donald Rumsfeld, Paul Wolfowitz, Dick Cheney, and the many others who had the courage to gamble on freedom, against what the liberals said were overwhelming odds. And congratulations above all to the people of Lebanon who saw the opportunity to restore their independence, and took it.
