The more things change . . .

In the last paragraph of The American Inquisition, the author notes that "[i]n ancien regime France, Cardinal Richelieu argued that for reasons of state 'urgent conjecture' must sometimes take the place of assured truth."

This struck me as quite like the much-ballyhooed reference by Paul Wolfowitz to "murky" intelligence about terrorism, in this Fox News interview.
