Mission Accomplished

The Bush administration has long proclaimed that "as Iraq stands up, we will stand down." From the looks of a "secret"report, leaked to the New York Times, it is time for us to go.

The report documents how Iraqis are now self-sufficient in coming up with the resources they need. One problem, the Iraqis in question are the insurgents, not the hapless government we continue to prop us despite the best efforts on the part of Iraqi politicians to fall down.

Equally annoying is the fact that the insurgents are doing more for less. They have managed to create this level of chaos, anti-Americanism and sectarian strife for a mere fraction of what the United States spends on enabling corrupt contractors.

But what more should you expect from an administration that can't even recognize a civil war when it sees it?
