Senate Wants Regular Updates on Iraq
The Senate has passed the Republican leadership's bill calling for "regular progress reports" on the war in Iraq. What, the banners behind Presidential podiums aren't doing it for you? In any case, the bill isn't about getting a memo to our representatives, it's sending a message to the Iraqis. Of course. Sen. John Warner translates: "We mean business. We have done our share, now the challenge is up to you." Is anyone else concerned that the challenge may be "up to" the Iraqis, but we're the ones who fucked their country up? So much for "you break it, you buy it." This is really more, "We broke it, you buy it, fix it, fill it with oil and then sell it to us at a deep discount."
