seems a bit more serious this time around about disarming his militia in Iraq. ... Afghanistan is pulling off the elections

Problem on the domestic front: The Bush administration keeps changing its rationales
for the war. The lede is devastating. ... The latest spin would be comic if it wasn’t so pathetic. Repeat: We had time.
