Some Neocon

From David Brooks's column in the New York Times today:

"Correction: In Tuesday's column I quoted the European Commission's president, Romano Prodi, telling the Italian newspaper La Stampa that force was not the answer to terrorism. I was relying on an Agence France-Presse translation, which was incorrect. Prodi actually said force should not be the only answer to terrorism. He said terrorism would not abate until the Israeli-Palestinian dispute was resolved."

In other words, as Emily Latella would say,"Never mind."

He trusted the French for the translation? What kind of neocon is he?
