Lefties heads begin to explode like popcorn.....

You just knew that this one was coming.

"A new military plan for troop withdrawals from Iraq that was described in broad terms this week to President-elect Barack Obama falls short of the 16-month timetable Mr. Obama outlined during his election campaign, United States military officials said Wednesday...." [my emphasis]

As Tom Maguire notes, The Times buried this in their A section. I guess they see no sense in making a big deal now of the issue that seemed to be such a big deal only a few weeks ago.

I have long said that the answer to the question of "When are we leaving Iraq" is: "Never. We're not leaving Iraq. It isn't in our national interests to leave Iraq. It isn't in the interests of the West for us to leave Iraq. The stability we provide in a region that (unfortunately) is the source of much of the world's energy mandates that we stay. Like it or not."
