3. is this the Baker panel recommendation...?
Edited on Wed Nov-29-06 09:39 PM by mike_c
Does "pull-back" mean withdrawal, or just ceding territory to the Sunnis?

on edit-- never mind, reading the post in LBN now....

via Lee Hamilton.

9. This is fascinating.
They're only what, a good 2 1/2 years behind most of us here? Over 3, I know, in terms of going in anyway. But I think a lot of us knew it was downhill that summer of '03 when the UN embassy was taken out. Geez, that was ugly.

I wonder how long before the Green Zone gets airlifted out of there.

12. "Victory in any kind of sense is over."
Pullout with the most favorable outcome. I wonder what the mother of the last soldier killed will think of this?

13. Not very big news IMHO
They just said to pull back, but didn't recommend any kind of timetable, nor did they say whether to pull back to the US or to other Mid East bases. Not a very dramatic or courageous recommendation. OTOH, Bush just said that he wouldn't pull back, so this makes it a little more fun.
