How Obvious Was it that the Iraq War Was Wrong?

Charles Pierce is less accepting of Ezra Klein’s Apology:

Kenneth Pollack’s “reluctant hawk” routine was made obviously obsolete the minute George W. Bush took his hand off the Bible. Why would it convince anyone in 2003 that the people actually running the war took any of those preconditions seriously? For all the relevance Pollack’s imaginary war had on the decisions made to start the real one, Klein might as well say he supported the Iraq war based on the mumblings of Sun Tzu or the military theories espoused by Peter Pan.
