White House says Iraq policy constantly adjusted

WASHINGTON, Oct 9 (Reuters) - The White House on Monday said U.S. policy on Iraq was constantly being adjusted after two senior Republicans offered assessments that differed from President George W. Bush.

James Baker, a former secretary of state with close ties to the Bush family and co-chair of an independent, bipartisan panel reviewing Iraq policy, said on Sunday there were alternatives other than "stay-the-course and cut-and-run."

...

White House spokesman Tony Snow, asked about Baker's comments, said Iraq policy was continuously reviewed and adjusted to fit changing circumstances.

"As a matter of fact we are constantly looking, adjusting, in terms of figuring out the best way to provide a situation where the Iraqis are able to stand on their own," Snow told reporters without giving examples of administration moves.

"It is simply not the fact that you've got a lined-up policy that simply runs and never changes," he said. "Every aspect is under constant review. There are tactical and strategic changes that are adjustments that are made all the time."

6. Why am I suddenly thinking of "Jurassic Park"?
The mathematician played by Jeff Goldblum kept quoting bits and pieces from chaos theory, that once things start to get chaotic, they will tend to become more chaotic.




Why is the ground shaking like that?

4. they move forces here, and then there, and then back here
and over there, and back again to here. And they bitch out the Iraq government a little different every time too. And they rotate the same excuses around.

8. I haven't seen any adjustments?????
Many are on their "3rd" tour. I would suspect those troops would welcome some adjustments that would save their lives and return them home to their families.
