(From the diaries -- Plutonium Page)

The wheels are coming off and fast. The contradicting views on Iraq that GW and the Pentagon expressed this past week are about to explode. From tomorrows Washington Post; Page A01

The Bush administration is significantly lowering expectations of what can be achieved in Iraq...

But I thought we were told that "we're makin' progress"? No?

"What we expected to achieve was never realistic given the timetable or what unfolded on the ground," said a senior official involved in policy since the 2003 invasion.. What is a neocon to make of this? What happened to upset the plan fantasy that we would be spreading democracy in the Middle East?

"We set out to establish a democracy, but we're slowly realizing we will have some form of Islamic republic..

Why is that? Didn't the Iraqis understand our good intentions? Or did BushCo simply fuck it up?
