By Senator Chuck Hagel, R-NE

We have misunderstood, misread, misplanned and mismanaged our honorable intentions in Iraq with an arrogant self-delusion reminiscent of Vietnam.

Glad to see the Republicans finally face reality. Although it sounds kind of hollow now that they're no longer in power.

Thanks for the link Mia. You are right about Hagel.

I guess I was referring to Republicans in general, like the ones who "switched" and are now voting for a deadline. I just wish there had been more when they held power.

Is Iraq an arrogant, self-delusional misadventure, or a decade-long commitment that "we can, and must, meet"? ("Iraq: The Decade After" by Joseph R. Biden and Chuck Hagel. http://biden.senate.gov/newsroom/details.cfm?id=189649).
The correct answer is yes!

Hey Ryan

Thanks for the link, although I wouldn't put too much stock in that document. Here's another quote from it:

"Various experts have testified that as many as 75,000 troops may be necessary, at a cost of up to $20 billion a year [to stabilize Iraq]".
