Open Thread - Passing The Buck Edition

by Steve

A Page One in Wednesday's Post shows that with increasing frequency Americans are now blaming Iraqis for the mess the Bush Administration created. Polticians and military staff are blaming the Iraqis for not doing more to secure their country, and the story notes the tide turned in early October when Condi and GOP Senator John Warner both said time was running out for the Iraqis to do their part. But as a very knowledgeable expert, former Colonel and now Boston University Professor Andrew Bacevich noted, these rhetorical shifts are the precursors to our departure from Iraq, acting as a salve of sorts to pass the buck from ourselves to others for our failures.

OK, it is your turn.
