I think the term "depraved" is too strong. But see if you don't wince a bit readingthese Kristol quotesfrom 2003, especially his confident expectation that there will be no Sunni/Sh'ia conflict in Iraq. And so far, even though I think the Times made the right decision to hire a self-consciously conservative voice for the op-ed page, he hasn't struck me as very well suited for the genre. Agree? Disagree?
