The Bush Administration Reveals Its Plan For Iraq
From last night's press conference:
Q: Mr. President, who will we be handing the Iraqi government over to on June 30th?
BUSH: We'll find that out soon. That's what Mr. Brahimi is doing. He's figuring out the nature of the entity we'll be handing sovereignty over.
For those of you keeping score at home, Mr. Brahimi is Lakhdar Brahimi, the United Nations Special Representative to Iraq (and Afghanistan). Thus, the Bush plan for Iraq is to take whatever the UN decides. It's not enough that we're using Axis-of-Evil Iranians to negotiate for us with al Sadr; now the Bushies are depending on the UN for giving us somebody to hand over something to on June 30th.
The cognitive dissonance is potentially life-threatening to anyone paying attention. I guess it's a good thing for Bush he doesn't do that.
