The David Brooks plan for Iraq: “Partitioning the country would be traumatic, so after the election it probably makes sense to make one last effort to hold the place together. Fire Donald Rumsfeld to signal a break with the past. Alter troop rotations so that 30,000 more troops are policing Baghdad.” I’m not sure how many times George W. Bush needs to repeat this, but he’s not going to fire Don Rumsfeld. He thinks Rumsfeld and Cheney “are doing fantastic jobs.” Rumsfeld will stay in office as long as Bush leaves office.
