Some Not So Good Signs
Posted by Ilan Goldenberg

Aside from the usual violence, there have been a number of stories over the past few days that taken together paint a bleak picture.

1. The Iraqi Parliament is considering a two month recess for the summer.  Urrrrgh…  Seriously?  Looks like the Administration hasn’t been too successful in instilling in the Iraqis a sense of urgency to reach a political solution.

2. King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia refused to meet with Prime Minister Maliki before the international summit next week in Cairo.  So much for regional diplomacy.  Although, on a positive end, the reason for snubbing Maliki is that Abdullah is fed up with the lack of movement on the political front.  At least someone is trying to hold Iraqi politicians accountable.

3. The Administration is pushing back any comprehensive evaluation of the “new” Iraq strategy until the fall.  Shocker…  If you are actually surprised by this move, then I have a very nice piece of real estate that I’d like to sell you in Anbar Province.

I would like to say Wolfie's audacity is quite remarkable. But it is also this audacity that has gotten him to the higher echelons he has achieved. It is a pity that his impending fall is of such embarrassment.
