"Should I stay or should I go now...." Yup, this administration is coming apart at the seams with regards to the handling of Iraq. First, there's confusion on what they'll rename the trumped-up Iraq debacle ("WOT" or "GSAVE"??). Then there's confusion about troop withdrawal. And now we hear of their confessions that indeed Iraq is a mess and that what they "expected to achieve was never realistic given the timetable."

Recall it was not too long ago that anybody making such statements was viewed as a lefty, anti-U.S. traitor. Also recall it was not too long ago (try June) that "MIA" Cheney made his infamous "last throes" comment. Will a reporter get the chance to ask him what changed in less than three months?
