GOP Senator Say Iraq Is Near Chaos
http://www.breitbart.com/news/2006/10/23/D8KUJC2O1.html

Under election-year pressure to change course in Iraq, the Bush administration said Monday there are no plans for dramatic shifts in policy or for ultimatums to Baghdad to force progress.

Just two weeks before the Nov. 7 elections that will determine whether Republicans retain control of Congress, the White House tried to calm political anxieties about deteriorating security in Iraq. Both Democratic and Republican lawmakers are calling on President Bush to change his war plan.

"We're on the verge of chaos, and the current plan is not working," Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., said in an Associated Press interview. U.S. and Iraqi officials should be held accountable for the lack of progress, said Graham, a Republican who is a frequent critic of the administration's policies.

Asked who in particular should be held accountable _ Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld, perhaps, or the generals leading the war _ Graham said: "All of them. It's their job to come up with a game plan" to end the violence

1. Does Graham know if there actually IS a plan? I would like him to
be a little more forthcoming with the "plan". The plan used to be "stay the course", but now we know that is not now, nor never has been the "plan". I'm trying to find out the "plan"! Is this a secret?

6. My first thought too
Plan? What plan? I think the plan is to not have a plan, not win, not to bring democracy but their reason for staying to give their buddies contracts and build the bases.

5. Only the cover-up of the plan failed. Chaos is the real plan.
I think at this point the * administration is OK with the appearance of failure, as long as their real plan to destabilize the middle east continues on course.

How else can they plunder? Why else do so many journalists get killed?

Many people are coming around to the horrifying reality that this was the plan all along. Stop Hussein from manipulating the oil market so OPEC and the multi-nationals can.

Simple. Easy. "Ooops. We goofed. Sorry."

8. I do not trust graham.
Kinda strange I live in SC and handn't heard this anywhere locally.

At any rate, he seemed to be a pit bull on the torture issue, and pledged to get to the bottom of it, but you never hear any more about it. Reminds me of specter on the illegal spying issue.

How'd they vote on the line of anti-freedom, anti-deomocracy, anti-American bills of the regime?

graham's being groomed, I think. Scary thought.
