What Fareed Zakaria got wrong was to stop being the Fareed Zakaria that brilliantly denounced the lack of understanding by the American people of what was going on after 9/11.
That Fareed Zakaria was carefully taken care of by the hawks that sold the invasion of Iraq : an invitation at the prestigious 2003 Bilderberg Meeting, a briefing by top White House figures, and a promotion as Editor of Newsweek International.
Zakaria spent the following months justifying the invasion of Iraq, and the following years trying to clumsily justify himself.
And yes, Bush got something right : everything. But as a fundamentalist, not as the POTUS.
