    that the Iraq war is a "mess already in progress."  

    This quiet backdoor negotiating of the withdrawal "agreement" (Bushco is calling it an "agreement", not a treaty, so they can get around the Constitution yet again and not bring it to Congress) is well underway, and there is nothing we can do to stop it.  Jan. 20th will be too late.

    Most of us aren't noticing that Bush is very quietly "waving the white flag of surrender" - albeit on paper - as he negotiates with the Iraqui parliament.   I was amazed that McCain had the gall to go around proclaiming "We're not leaving until we achieve victory", even while these talks were going on.    We ARE leaving.  The Iraquis are making us leave.  It's just the complicated "how" to do it that's still a big chocolate mess.

    Gates has been in the loop on all of this, and it makes practical sense to keep him on to see it through in all of its complexities.   And yes, he was a lone voice of sanity desperately trying, as the diarist said, to make Bush act LESS INSANELY.  Perhaps this will get us out all the sooner.

    I'm happy to wait and see.   We won't know all the damage the Bushies have done until much later. And make no mistake about it, the broke it and we bought it.  In fact, Bush pretty much broke the WORLD.
