By the way, isn’t the very existence of an Iraq Study Group a tacit admission that the Bush Administration doesn’t know what the hell they’re doing in Iraq? Don’t we already have people on the government payroll to come up with military strategy and foreign policy? If they need Poppy Bush’s friends to come in and tell them how to do their jobs, then maybe we need more competent people making these decisions in the first place.
Then again, the whole Baker/Hamilton Commission is a fool’s errand anyways. It doesn’t matter how many “experts” Bushie convenes, they’ll never find a solution to a problem that can’t be solved.
