NYT. Friedman is taking strategy cues straight out of Boyd….
We're in trouble in Iraq. We have to immediately get the
Democratic and Republican politics out of this policy and start
honestly reassessing what is the maximum we can still achieve there and
what every American is going to have to do to make it happen. If
we do not, we'll end up not only with a fractured Iraq, but with a
fractured America, at war with itself and isolated from the world. [John Robb's Weblog]
