Richard Perle ran a fool’s errand by attempting to defend U.S. foreign policy before an audience of Guardian readers in England yesterday night.

Does this joker really think having pure intentions should win him any points in this foreign policy debate? What about proper planning and execution? What about understanding what one’s limits should be?
