What they said

The Iraq Study Group, the new Secretary of War Bob Gates, and the 95 sellout senators who confirmed him all agree--the war on Iraq is a mess. They also agree not to do anything positive about it, like bringing the troops home. Check out WIIIAI's take on the ISG's report and aWol's reaction to it, and Chris Floyd's post on the failure of the Gates-keeper-outers.

Still, you rarely see news paragraphs like this opening one from AP:
President Bush's war policies have failed in almost every regard, the bipartisan Iraq Study Group concluded Wednesday, and it warned of dwindling chances to change course before crisis turns to chaos.
Bush's war policies have failed pretty much since he stole the election in 2000. Why did it take this long for people to notice?
