Moral equivalence run amok

This assertion, which seems to have increasing currency on the left, is absurd:
The Bush administration claimed that the liberation of Iraqis from the inhumane rule of a dictator was a good-enough reason for taking military action against that country. Now investigations of the U.S. military's torture and abuse of Iraqi prisoners in Abu Ghraib has stripped the United States of even that wobbly claim.
