Neo-cons dare to speak about failed states

There is something pretty wrong about framing countries as “failed states” and ripe for photo shoots, but that’s what Foreign Policy has done. Places like Somalia, Yemen, Iraq and Afghanistan are on the list and it seems that the magazine has taken a perverse pleasure in doing so.

And what kind of credibility does a publication have when it asks Paul Wolfowitz, a key architect of the Iraq war, to comment? Are we supposed to take his thoughts seriously?
