"How did it come to pass that an opposition's measure of a president's foreign policy was all or nothing, success or "failure"? The answer is that the political absolutism now normal in Washington arrived at the moment--Nov. 7, 2000--that our politics subordinated even a war against terror to seizing the office of the presidency." - Daniel Henninger - WSJ 11/18/05

TIME - "Has Maliki Conquered Sadr City?"

From Time magazine:

"Sa'ad Mutlieck was one resident of Sadr City heartened to see armored columns of Iraqi Army forces rolling deep into his neighborhood on Tuesday. "We hope the government is serious about ending all the armed groups so life could be back to normal," said Mutlieck. "The situation is very, very bad."'
Odd; hadn't Maliki and Iraqi forces totally screwed up and lost (or not gained) Sadr City. I recall that was the line when Amb. Crocker and General Petraeus were in D. C.. It was Tet all over again right? Should Time be reporting this? I mean seriously, it didn't happen over night and doesn't that qualify it as a loss and old news that no one really cares about anyway?
