The Watcher’s Council has announced its picks for the most outstanding posts of the preceding week. The winning Council post was Joshuapundit’s post, “Between Iraq and a Hard Place—Why We Went, How It Got So Screwed Up, and Where We’re Going—Part 2”. I disagree with Freedom Fighter’s interpretation of events in a number of particulars and we have a side-bet going on U. S. withdrawal from Iraq but it’s certainly a thought-provoking post. Second place honors went to Right Wing Nut House’s “Death of a Titan”. Rick Moran’s reflections on the death of historian Arthur Schlesinger are definitely worth reading.
The winning non-Council post was Websurdity’s post, “Uncomfortable Question: Was the Death Star Attack an Inside Job?”. Tied for second place were SWJ Blog’s post, “Iraq Trip Report” (dry title; probably the best status report on Iraq this year from any source) and Kerplunk—Shaken Not Stirred’s, “10 Institutions That Ruin the World—#1”. I can’t say I’m in complete agreement with this post, a pillorying of the UN, but, obviously, some Council members disagree with me.
The complete results are here.
