Quote of the day. (It's summertime; has anyone seen my flip flops?)
You'll never guess who was bemoaning that politicians were
considering what is tantamount to a cut-and-run strategy. Their sudden embrace of accelerated Iraqification and American troop withdrawal dates, without adequate stability, is an invitation to failure. The hard work of rebuilding Iraq must not be dictated by the schedule of the next American election.It was John Kerry, addressing the Council on Foreign Relations.
