Hitting the Nail on the Head 

Deputy Secretary of Defense Paul Wolfowitz appeared today before the House Armed Services Committee and explained, in an acrimonious Q&A session, that yes, we should expect to maintain a sizable U.S. troop presence in Iraq for many years to come. The Congressmen, to his utter mystification, acted as if that were a bad thing.

Wolfowitz also said the media are part of the problem in Iraq. "Frankly, part of our problem is a lot of the press are afraid to travel very much, so they sit in Baghdad and they publish rumors," he said.
