Pretty amazing development over the weekend as the Prime Minister of Iraq endorsed, by name, the withdrawal plan of Obama. As in, Withdrawing US forces from Iraq is a good idea and one I, the Prime Minister of Iraq support. Maliki is being a very bad puppet, and is leaving both the Bush Administration and the McCain campaing hanging. The attempts to walk this back are pretty pathetic. The stay in Iraq comittee is in a real bind here. They can't disparage Maliki, that paragon of democratic virtue that we have spent so much blood and treasure on. So what do they say? We need to stay in Iraq to preserve democracy despite the democraticly elected government of Iraq wanting us to leave? Serrously, what do they say?
