William Raspberry gets at least one thing right in this column:

If a sound exit plan means getting out without leaving Iraq less stable than it is now, and with a reasonable chance of becoming an American-style democracy, nobody has one.

Jack Murtha is right. We cannot win in Iraq. The generals know it, and they're beginning to tell anyone who'll listen, and that doesn't include George W. Bush, Dick Cheney, Condi Rice or Don Rumsfeld. So it's time for Democratic politicians to get off the fence and endorse the Murtha Resolution:

Section 1. The deployment of United States forces in Iraq, by direction of Congress, is hereby terminated and the forces involved are to be redeployed at the earliest practicable date.
Section 2. A quick-reaction U.S. force and an over-the-horizon presence of U.S Marines shall be deployed in the region.
Section 3 The United States of America shall pursue security and stability in Iraq through diplomacy.
