WASHINGTON — As pressure mounts for a change of course in Iraq, the Bush administration are groping one and other for a viable new strategy for the president to unveil by Christmas, with deliberations now focused on three main options to redefine the U.S. military and political engagement, according to officials familiar with the debate.
1) 30,000 additional U.S. troops
2) Redirect the U.S. military out of the country
3) Abandon U.S. efforts in the Middle East altogether
Bush met with congressional leaders in the Cabinet Room of the White House on Friday and said Bla…bla…bla and everyone agreed.
Incoming House Speaker Nancy Pelosi was delighted to be there.
Current Speaker Dennis Hastert had his mind on other things.
Current Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist was thinking about how well he blocked Medicare reform.
Meanwhile the real President said he will decide what is going to happen and he'll let us know when he's ready and has passed it by the AIPAC.
