Open Thread - Doomed To Fail Edition


by Steve

If you want to get a sense of the hopeless mess Bush and Cheney have gotten this country into in Iraq, read these two stories in Thursday’s Post. The first is an analysis of the real message behind the Baker/Hamilton report, which is that every basic assumption behind Bush and Cheney’s plans for Iraq and the region were completely wrong.

And if that isn’t bad enough, a second piece in the Post states that experts and the Iraqis themselves now believe that the report itself is completely divorced from the reality on the ground inside Iraq. So not only was the original plan and policy faulty and negligent, but the remedy is unworkable and doomed to fail as well.

On that cheery note, take it away.
