Does sticking to the June 30 deadline to turn Iraq over to an Iraqi government still make sense?
Not the way things are going now
Yes, if fighting decreases significantly
Yes, we set a date and should honor it no matter what
Nothing about this war has made sense
Total votes 573
(Someone wrote in a Comment that the 4th option should not have been included because it had nothing to do with the deadline and detracted from the topic. The commenter is correct.)


Paul Krugman commentary Isn't it amazing? A year after the occupation of Iraq began, Mr. Bush and his inner circle seem more divorced from reality than ever.

60-Foot-Tall Sign Appeared Outside White House

The Bush administration today grappled with allegations that President George W. Bush did not see a sixty-foot-tall billboard featuring Osama bin Laden that appeared suddenly across the street from the White House in August 2001.
The gigantic billboard, which featured bin Laden’s stern visage and the words “I AM GOING TO HIJACK U.S. AIRPLANES VERY SOON,” was first spotted by a UPS driver, Clayton Spedding, while making his morning deliveries on Pennsylvania Avenue.
“I was like, ‘Didn’t there use to be a Bacardi ad up there?’” Mr. Spedding, 34, told reporters today.
After making his startling discovery, Mr. Spedding called the White House, but was told to call back when he had “something more specific.”
As Mr. Bush’s apparent failure to notice the bin Laden billboard ignited a new round of finger-pointing in Washington, the President went on the offensive, warning the al-Qaeda kingpin to make future terror threats more explicit or “face the consequences.”
In a nationally televised address, Mr. Bush said that all future terror threats that did not include “the who, what, when, where and why” in the first paragraph “would be completely and categorically ignored.”
In addition to Mr. bin Laden, Mr. Bush singled out Iran and North Korea for making terror threats that were not specific enough, calling them “The Axis of Vagueness.”
As for the billboard of bin Laden, Mr. Bush said that once he was notified of its existence he took appropriate action: “I asked the national security staff to find out if Saddam Hussein had put it up there.”

You should do something about your links to story such as "Bridges of pork"...
When us folks click on one of your seemingly interesting stories we find out they're nothing more than a waste of time because there is a registration process...
Is there anything that can be done on your end to ease this process?
Maybe Matt Drudge can help on this one...
Still love your stuff,
Walter S

Well heck, Walter, I can't get us all free lunch all the time. I have to jump thru the mini-registration hoops because I want the information.

email followup

I also dislike registering for a news article when I click on one of your
links to an interesting headline. Unlike our pal Walter S., I have found a
way around it rather than blame you...
I just take a few key words or phrases from your website and then use Google to search their news articles and find many sources for the same story.
I provided two links for Walter S. so he may read the articles without registering if he so desires. Forget the fact that it probably takes less time to register to The Washington Post than the amount of time you spend searching Google and getting the article from another site.. it's the principle that really matters.

I love your show and your website, but (no offense to Eliza) I really miss the 3 hour show. Your show is my favorite of all radio-land.

Google is a good idea, Erica. Thanks for the help. I should have thought of that and didn't. As for the 3 hour versus 2 hour show, two is better for me.
