Another reason we should get out of Iraq now: We went through the advisory/training phase in Vietnam 40 years ago, and it didn't work. We're just repeating this and the combat phase in reverse now. Why can't we learn from history???
Once we get out, the Iraqi's will not support any foreign fighters who are waging civil war. Just wait and see.

Brian I'm glad I don't have memory loss like Libby is claiming. I have followed the Libby case from day one. Now it really heats up. I researched the defense Cheney gave for not testifying due to executive privilege and found case law used in the Clinton case that ordered a President to testify. Nixon's play book isn't working for Cheney either. I hope you get someone to cover this as it's at the heart of the crimes committed by this Administration. Now Cheney knows he's not above the law even if Bush hands over the power. America still has a strong Constitution. The Wilson case starts in February most likely using testimony under oath by the witnesses in the Libby case as facts.

What is the will of the people? Only 20% of the American people want us out of Iraq now. That's media's poll so who really knows.

As to the rift between Joint Chiefs and the White House, I believe that the President's disregard for the will of the people, Congress and the Supreme Court is a Constitutional crisis. Why isn't your coverage reflecting the Executive branch's power grab?
