So Now What, Mr. President?
Folks used to wonder why he didn't push into Baghdad. Baker doesn't hear that question much anymore.
The Iraq Study Group, also known as the Baker Commission after its co-chairman, former secretary of State James A. Baker, has been widely seen as a gambit by Republican moderates close to Bush's father, the 41st president, to rescue the 43rd president from his disastrous plunge into Iraq. Of all the things Bush dislikes, the idea of needing to be rescued by Daddy may well top the list.
WASHINGTON - While President Bush acknowledges the need for major changes in Iraq, he will not use this week’s Iraq Study Group report as political cover for bringing troops home, his national security adviser said Sunday.
“We have not failed in Iraq,” Stephen Hadley said as he made the talk show rounds. “We will fail in Iraq if we pull out our troops before we’re in a position to help the Iraqis succeed.”
Yes...let's not fail in Iraq..Only here in the U.S.!
Bush seeks advice on new course in Iraq Dec.11: Opening three days of intensive consultations on Iraq, President Bush says that the United States and countries across the Middle East have a vital stake in helping Iraq succeed.
