Dave E.:

Believe me, if James Bakers says it and leaks it to the NY Sun (of all rags), it's official:

"'Baker's Panel Rules Out Iraq Victory'

Instead, the commission is headed toward presenting President Bush with two clear policy choices that contradict his rhetoric of establishing democracy in Iraq. The more palatable of the two choices for the White House, "Stability First," argues that the military should focus on stabilizing Baghdad while the American Embassy should work toward political accommodation with insurgents. The goal of nurturing a democracy in Iraq is dropped."

The other, more likely choice for the boy king?

It's called "Redeploy and Contain." Same thing prominent Dems have been getting called traitors and terrorist-enablers for. I guess it's just the conservative version of Cut and Run, which makes it just fine. Idiots.

Final cherry on the sundae:
"Because of the politically explosive topic of the Baker commission, the panel has agreed not to release its findings until after the November 7 elections."

I wonder how many people will die from now until then? Shame on them if they do, dying and
all...because that's not politically useful.

26 days to daylight.

Tom from Madison:


thanks for continuing to tell the truth. Progressives have been saying "I told you so..." ever since Bush invaded Iraq. Killing hundreds of thousands of innocent people is obviously no way to defeat terrorism or nurture democracy.

...the policy choices now are starting to sound like the Nixon-era debate about how to get out of Viet Nam. There was and is no peace with honor when you have compiled the records that Nixon and Bush did respectively.
