No... the administration hasn't really adopted the Demonrats message. By announcing that the Iraqi government should be able to completely secure Iraq on their own, without American military support, in 18 months from now, it places pressure on Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki to actually get off his muslim ass and start working for his country and not against it!
In another related story, U.S. Soldiers begin an organized attack on the stronghold at Sadr City, the home of Iraqi henchman, Muqtada al-Sadr, a fellow that should have been dead many moons ago.
I don't know whom within the administration has been taking the testosterone shots and actually grew a pair, but I hope it continues! The interesting part is that nobody told Maliki about the attack on Sadr City. Is it because he can't be trusted?
