Open Thread - Not Your Poppy's Bitch Edition


by Steve

When all is said and done, I'm not so sure anymore that Bush will willingly go along with Baker's Iraq Study Group report. For that matter, I'm not so sure that Robert Gates will end up being Poppy's man rather than Cheney's. Want proof?

The White House has hurriedly embarked on its own review of Iraq policy, separately looking for new options by looking solely internally rather than from the outside. Pointedly, the review is looking at the "situation on the ground" which is Bush/Cheney doublespeak used to discredit outsiders for allegedly not knowing what they know about the military situation. The Post notes in Wednesday's paper that the administration is now trying to do in two months what the Iraq Study Group has been doing in eight. In other words, this is a sham so that Bush doesn't look like he's taking direction from dad and his friends.

OK, it's your turn.
