Time's Up: What NeoCon's Said 6 Months Ago

Bill O'Reilly: "We can’t force these people to stop killing each other. They’re either going to do it or they’re not, but now they know. Now they know. They’ve got six months and that’s it. [The O’Reilly Factor, 1/24/07]"

Charles Krauthammer: "And I think we ought to give him and the president the benefit of the gap — of the doubt, give them six months and see if it can be controlled. [Fox News, 1/12/07]"

Bill Kristol: "It’s so irresponsible that they can’t be quiet for six or nine months and say the president has made a decision, we’re not going to change that decision, we’re not going to cut off funds and insist on the troops coming back, so let’s give it a chance to work. You really wonder, do they want it to work or not? I really wonder that. I hate to say this about the Democrats. They’re people I know personally and I respect some of them. Do they want it to succeed or not? [Fox News, 1/21/07]"

The Bush Administration and its supporters have been constantly changing their story and moving the goal posts back ever since they began pushing for the war...talk about flip-flopping!

So, do you believe the surge is not working? What proof do you offer?

Do you propose full withdrawl?

See the story above this one. Bush just said few of the goals set have been achieved. al-Maliki is now telling us they don't want us there anymore.

I'm not sure why anyone would believe any prediction or analysis put out by the Bush administration anymore. They've been wrong about every single thing. Why would you believe that they would "follow us home"? Bush has been so consistently wrong, that the better bet is to assume the opposite of what he says will be the real outcome.
