Another fantastic column in today's NYT (they have good people, it turns out) from Bob Herbert on the continuing tragedy that is the Iraq war.
The only part I question is the assertion that Bush watched television coverage of Falluja. This would run counter to everything the administration has ever said about the Prez's [non-existant] viewing habits. He has minions for that, don't you know. They get the outrage and the horror, he gets the highlights somewhere between carting around his wanna-be-Fala and crawling around his office making bad jokes.
But really, READ THIS COLUMN and then ponder a way out of this mess. If you come up with a good one, please share it . . . .
