White House Releases New “Iraq National Strategy” Report


President Bush will no doubt be talking about this new National Strategy for Victory in Iraq Report.
I am reading it now but wanted to get it out quickly to TWN readers.
More later.

UPDATE: George Bush’s speech this morning is almost entirely a counter-point response to James Fallows’ important cover story in the Atlantic Monthly this month. Bush seems to be asserting that Fallows’ assessment and math are wrong.
I’ll be commenting on this later, but my sense is that Fallows went into extensive, nearly tedious detail about the thus far failed effort to train and “stand up” Iraqi security forces. The President’s assertions about the great successes training Iraqi forces do not stand up to scrutiny. SCC
