$400 billion failure

“Grave and deteriorating” is how the bi-partisian Baker-Hamilton commission described the situation in Iraq.

…it handed President Bush both a rebuke for his current strategy and a detailed blueprint for a fundamentally different approach, including the pullback of all American combat brigades over the next 15 months.

The findings left Washington awash in speculation over whether Mr. Bush would embark on a huge policy reversal. To do so would mark an admission that three and a half years of strategy had failed, and that his repeated assurances that “absolutely, we’re winning” were based more on optimism than realism.
