Fukuyama now says that he had secretly opposed the Iraq war before it was
launched. An unusual and convenient reticence, notes Irwin Stelzer, editor of
'The Neocon Reader,' for such an inveterate pamphleteer, letter writer and
essayist. After public opinion had turned against the war, Fukuyama then
courageously came out against it. He has every right to change his mind at his
convenience. He has no right to change what I said.
