    Clinton Says Iraq on ‘Right Track,’ Vows U.S. Support

    April 25 (Bloomberg) -- U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton voiced her support for Iraq’s government during an unannounced visit to Baghdad today, days after the deadliest spate of attacks in the country in the past year.

    “We are committed to Iraq, we want to see a stable, sovereign, self-reliant Iraq,” Clinton told an audience including 120 invited Iraqi civilians at the U.S. embassy. Her arrival in the city followed two days of bombings that killed more than 150 people.

    The latest bomb attacks were the last gasp of an insurgency that has been severely weakened since 2007, Clinton told reporters. She said the attacks were a “tragic” sign the “rejectionists fear that Iraq is going in the right direction.”

    Clinton outright admits success since 2007 and furthermore defines BUSH policy on Iraq.

    See, this is why Kerry was made head of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee. The Democrats claimed we were losing in Iraq before they claimed we were winning in Iraq, but in both cases they were supportive of everything we were doing in Iraq, even when it was wrong, which it is not now because we have set a new direction in Iraq with the same goals and objectives as the old direction, just clarified and made less murky.

    Wouldn't it be easier and less costly for the CIA to put together a coup? You know, one of those delightful black ops sort of things that the government knows to never let see the light of day?

    Oh wait.....

    In terms of cost, I would fully agree with you but we would also have to gauge the risk that Pakistan and its nukes dont fall into Taliban hands if we were to try something like that.

    Surely there's some rich landowner type that doesn't want to live under Sharia law who can command the respect and support of the military?
