Same As It Ever Was

The Iraq troop reduction fairytale schema is this - Congress hold hearings, the media covers it, some serious political types nod approvingly, most yell about partisan politics, the president hints that he might bring home a small number of troops sometime in the distant future, the media headlines the president's non-plan as a very wise compromise that will bring our boys home, the undecided voter buys every bit of it, and we remain at war forever.
