Surprise, surpise: “Objectives largely met.” – Gen. Petraeus

I do hate to be cynical, but General Pollyanna Petraeus says we’re making progress in Iraq and early withdrawal would have “devastating consequences.”  Did anyone really expect a different message?  No, even the most reluctant cynics expect him to toe the line. 

Despite overwhelming evidence that our investment of time, money and lives lacks any substantial return – we continue misappropriate our investments, in fact our sacred honor, in Iraq.  While Bin Laden continues to make home movies, we pursue a proxy war with Iran.  I guess we’ll just have to wait for a new administration for a change of course.
