W. House debate over troop withdrawal deepens:  NYT
The president and his aides had thought they could wait to begin discussions about any change in strategy after September 15, when the U.S. commander in Iraq, General David Petraeus, and U.S. ambassador to Iraq, Ryan Crocker, must present a much-anticipated report on Iraq's security and political progress.
Those who are barking the loudest about a withdrawal from Iraq make the point that we didn't adequately consider the consequences of going there in the first place.  While I don't necessarily accept the premise, it's interesting to see that they seem to be doing the very same thing in the opposite direction.
