Harry Reid never fails to amaze me with his responses to Bush’s speeches. This time he said:
“I regret that the American people have still not received a plan that identifies the remaining political, military and economic objectives that must be met in order to succeed.”
Huh? The plan in Iraq has been the same from the beginning – to build a democracy in Iraq that is defensible by the Iraqis themselves. As that gets completed, we withdraw troops. Difficult to do, yes, but to understand?
