Dan Bartlett's fatwa to Iraqis: "You must step up and take responsibility"


White House says it's flexible on Iraq
Bartlett: No timetable, but working to 'define demonstrable milestones'

WASHINGTON - The fledgling Iraqi government must "step up and take more responsibility" for the country's security, a high-ranking White House official said Monday.

At the same time, Dan Bartlett denied in a television interview that the Bush administration's war policy has been a sweeping "stay the course" commitment, saying "what we aren't doing is sitting there with our heads in the sand."

In contrast to earlier White House statements, Bartlett did not deny a New York Times report saying the head of the U.S.-led Multinational Forces in Iraq and the U.S. ambassador were working on a plan that for the first time would set a specific timetable for disarming militias and meeting other political and economic goals.

2. What?!
This is what John Kerry has been saying since he put out his time table plan. That it would help encourage the Iraqi's to step up and take more responsibility. So if they aren't just sitting there what is their exit plan?
