Quote Of The Day

In the round-up below, but worth repeating:

"The people who failed to prevent this disaster are not the ones you can count on to fix it."

- U.S. Senate candidate Jim Webb (D-VA), on Iraq.

As the Administration releases more of one NIE (but holds back on releasing another) revealing the dire situation in Iraq, it's worth noting again that past judgment and future performance are inexorably linked.

And those who got us into this mess, those who have consistently "lost the plot" on the reality facing our troops, and those who still refuse to admit to themselves that they were ever even the slightest bit wrong (or even allow themselves the "luxury" of self-reflection) are the ones least likely to lead us to success in the future.
That's a great talking point, but the fact of the matter can be boiled down to the top of the 2nd page of the report. Read it here:
