Am I in 2004? I had to check my calendar this morning after I woke up to check the news, and found that there’s violence in Abu Ghraib and bombs going off all over Iraq.
I seem to remember the promise that Abu Ghraib was going to be destroyed. I seem to remember the promise that the Surge was going to bring peace to Iraq and a political solution.
Then again, there’s a stack of promises about Iraq so huge that if you go back far enough, just about every policy turns out to have been a promise of something we would never do.
