The truth is that political reconciliation in Iraq is going better there than it is here at home because of better security.
Graham’s foresight on Iraq has been repeatedly off-base. For example, in August, he said the U.S. was “kicking ass” and foresaw “breakthrough” political reconciliation “within weeks, not months.” In reality, little has been accomplished since then.
So, does Graham really want Washington to function more like Baghdad? Does he want to see one political faction assassinating the other’s officials? Politically-linked murders of judicial investigators, doctors, and politicians? Sectarian bombings of civilians trying to freely practice their religion?
