I just read the most astute, “honest portrayal of the Iraq situation”:http://www.johnkerry.com/pressroom/speeches/spc_2004_0920.html I’ve seen since the whole frenzy started. It’s balanced, it’s backed by facts, and amazingly enough it offers a coherent plan for how to both restore the country and get U.S. troops out of there as soon as possible.
The author? “John Kerry”:http://www.johnkerry.com/. I know, I’m as surprised as anyone.
It really is a good read, and it’s the only thing I’ve read so far that gives me hope of getting out of this quagmire.
