“I began to appreciate that authentic truth is never simple and that any version of truth handed down from on high-whether by presidents, prime ministers, or archbishops-is inherently suspect.”
Andrew J. Bacevich, Washington Rules: America's Path to Permanent War

“The folly and hubris of the policy makers who heedlessly thrust the nation into an ill-defined and open-ended 'global war on terror' without the foggiest notion of what victory would look like, how it would be won, and what it might cost approached standards hitherto achieved only by slightly mad German warlords.”
Andrew J. Bacevich, Washington Rules: America's Path to Permanent War

“In measured doses, mortification cleanses the soul. It's the perfect antidote for excessive self-regard.”
Andrew J. Bacevich, Washington Rules: America's Path to Permanent War
