There was post 9/11 line of thought that moderates be courted in the Muslim community. However, that was before we really understood the corruption and complexity of the Muslim world.
What we have really gained in Iraq is an understanding of the Middle East. There friends and enemies are determined by the highest bidder. So, everyone you try to win to your side is corrupt or will be in the future. The article is flawed in trying impose a Western viewpoint of permanent friends and incorruptible leaders.
