FRIEDMAN SAYS BUSHCO DRIFTING ON IRAQ

Tom Friedman on Don Imus this morning lamented what he called "drift" in Iraq policy. According to Friedman, no one in the Bush administration is concentrating on Iraq. "Condi flies in for 24 hours, and then she's back to working on India or something else. Rumsfeld flies in for 24 hours and then he's back talking about transforming the Pentagon. The whole thing is left up to our admittedly able ambassador Zalmay Khalilzad and the military." He said this is the most important thing going on, and we need to do something like Clinton/Holbrook did in Dayton: get the parties in a room removed from the action (led by a tough guy like Holbrook) and don't let them out until we get an agreement for government from the Shiites, Kurds and Sunnis.

However, he noted, the Bushies are "allergic" to considering anything that Clinton ever did. "If Clinton did it, it must be wrong" is their attitude, he said.

Comparing the relative records of Clinton and Bush, that explains so much.
