I find it fascinating that he's making a list of benchmarks for the Iraqi government to meet.
I can't help thinking "or what?" What are we going to do if the Iraqi government decides to find its ovaries and say that they want a sectarian government, or that they don't want all sects to share equally in oil revenues?
Then what are we going to do? Invade the country?
I find it a great step forward that he took responsibility for the FUBARing of Iraq. It's a damn shame it took 4 years and 3000+ American lives (and heaven only knows how many Iraqi lives) for him to admit it.
