Iraq Four Years On


Four years into our misadventure in Iraq, it's clear this war is a disaster. The perception of the United States around the world has been diminished. Our ham-handed approach to the war has emboldened our enemies (Iran, North Korea) and given fresh motivation to those who would do us harm throughout the Middle East. We have diverted resources that would have been far better utilized against the Taliban and Al-Qaeda. The American people have lost faith in their government and in the media, all guilty of far too readily buying into what we now know to be bogus reasons for war. The long-term prospects for the U.S. economy are in the toilet now. And the loss of life in our armed forces and among Iraqi civilians has been catastrophic.

And now the president--in his news conference today--asks for patience?
