Hed: Bush cites Israel as model for Iraq
President Bush held up Israel as a model for defining success in Iraq, saying Thursday the U.S. goal there is not to eliminate attacks but to enable a democracy that can function despite violence.
With his Iraq policy under increasing criticism from the public and lawmakers in both parties, Bush went to the U.S. Naval War College to declare progress and plead for patience. At the same time, his top national security went to Capitol Hill to hear out Republican critics.
We’ll have succeded in Iraq when it’s like Israel.
Where do they come up with these guys? Which speech writer wrote that? Sometimes stupidity rises to the level of a high crime.
