Friedman Throws in the Iraq Towel

The Peking Duck succinctly sums up today's NY Times op ed from Thomas Friedman:
When Thomas "it's-not-too-late-to-win-in-Iraq" Friedman throws in the towel, we know we're in serious doo doo. And you needn't be a seer to read between the lines of this story to see that Friedman now considers Iraq to be a lost cause. A lot of readers criticized me when I said we were going to lose Iraq to the theocrats, not the insurgents. If you're with me today, don't miss the next-to-last paragraph of this grim column.
Read Friedman's "Insurgency Out, Anarchy In" here or here.
