Progress in Iraq? Not really

A Government Accounting Office report scheduled for delivery to Congress next week paints a bleak picture of the war in Iraq.

For several years now, the pro-war crowd has been telling us that we're just six months or so away from turning the corner in Iraq. Or they've conceded that all will be lost if victory isn't achieved in another six months. (Consider this report of six months ago this week.) Meanwhile, hundreds more lives and billions more dollars have been wasted.

We were told that the so-called surge would make a difference, but it's only been a big bust, and our prospects for victory in Iraq remain virtually non-existent.

When are we going to put an end to this tragic misadventure? True patriotism requires that we do it soon.
