Subject:     Adelman’s  Shakespeare


The puff piece from the Washington Post on this enterprise stirred up memories of a 2006 SAA panel during the Iraq War organized by Scott Newstok entitled “Drafting Shakespeare: The Military Theatre.” Mr. Adelman was a member of that panel and one of the chief promoters of the war, who acquired fame with his prediction that the invasion and occupation would be a “cakewalk.” The current article indicates that the revelation of its folly has not diminished his political influence or his ability to profit from mass murder.
