The Senate Foreign Relations Committee meets to discuss the future of Iraq. Witnesses include: Anthony Cordesman, Center for Strategic and International Studies; Retired Gen. Joseph P. Hoar, former commander in chief, U.S. Central Command; Phebe Marr, former senior fellow, National Defense University; and Larry Diamond, senior fellow, Hoover Institution, Stanford, Calif."It appears that once you are retired, or hold no political office, you can tell the truth at a committee hearing. This panel provided what I think is the most accurate assessment of the current situation, the current difficulties, and future difficulties. But, they also appeared to provide some reasoned advice on how to move forward in the process of handing the Iraqi people back their government for 'the first time since...1956(?)'.
