Who Lost Iraq?

This doesn't look good:

Center For Security Policy: "Back in February, Vice President Joseph Biden declared: 'I am very optimistic about Iraq. I mean, this could be one of the great achievements of this administration.' Even for a politician much given to strategic ineptitude compounded by foot-in-mouth disease, that was a doozy.

As has been pointed out innumerable times since, if Iraq turns out to be a truly 'great achievement' in any ordinary sense of the word, Mr. Biden and Barack Obama - two of the most insistent opponents of George W. Bush's efforts to consolidate Iraq's liberation - are among the last people in Washington who should take such credit.

Worse yet, unfortunately for the Iraqi people and others who love freedom, it looks increasingly as though the Obama administration will have the loss of Iraq as one of its most signal accomplishments."
