The War in Iraq

Senator Reid is talking about the war in Iraq being lost. I'm not sure that's narrowly accurate, since there was never any clear definition of what would constitute winning that war. But at the same time, he has an important political point.

I've never said this so many words, so I'll say it now.

We lost the war.

Now let's deal with the reality of what's happening on the ground, instead of living inside neocon fantasy.

(And if you agree with me on this, may I suggest a spot of political memage. Post "We lost the war" on your blog or journal or Web site.)
