In Response to: Never Again?

A profile of Professor Gary Bass in the Nov. 5 issue mistakenly stated that Bass “supported the Iraq war.” In fact, Bass said in an interview that he was deeply ambivalent about the war. It did not qualify as a humanitarian intervention, he believes, because there was no ongoing catastrophe, yet he was appalled by Saddam Hussein’s atrocities. In the run-up to the war, he did not make any public statements for or against it.
