Best. Interview. Ever.

The Boston Phoenix's Adam Reilly talks with Seymour Hersh:

Q: Has the administration learned any lessons from Iraq?

A: An American government learning from history? Learning from past mistakes? And maybe actually firing somebody who does wrong? Are you kidding? Excuse me, am I talking to somebody from the middle of Plato’s cave? Learn from Vietnam? Learn from what happened to the British who tried to occupy Afghanistan in the 19th century? Learn from what happened 1000 years ago when the infidels tried to take over Baghdad? Come on. Nobody learns.
