“We Owe the Troops an Exit” by Bob Herbert (Times, 8/31/10)

          Congratulations to Bob Herbert, a sane and honest commentator of the disaster in the Af-Pak-Iraq region.

          Unfortunately, he appears to be in the minority. Other TIMES reporters (e.g., “moderate” conservative David Brooks, who thinks a new nation is being built in Iraq!) are meekly watching the war being managed, in many cases by opportunists using their patriotic posturing to advance their careers.

          Specifically, will General David Petraeus move from military hero to candidate for president in the near future?

          Stay tuned; but, in the interim, continue to read the columns of Bob Herbert.
