The Iraq Study Group Report

This is the James Baker Iraq study group report that everyone has been talking about.

http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/shared/bsp/h...oup_report.pdf

Just thought I would pass it on so y'all could read it for yourself so your not left with only bits and pieces from the spin doctors.

Not completely,

I was working thought it today at the office but didn't get a chance to finish.

I should have it finished tomorrow. It's 160 pages. I will refrain from commenting on it until I finish it.

Finished the report.

It makes statements but gives no solutions. I also does no take into consideration any of the consequences involved with it's primary recommendations. It is a diplomats view point of the world when a military perspective is needed.

If this report is a reflection of Americas might and principals, I am shocked that we were ever able to defeat Hitler in 42 or for that matter ANY enemy we have ever had to come up against.

More cut run achieve peace in the middle east through unconditional surrender Bull .

If this report is a window into our future then Osama and Al Qaeda have already won and the US as it exists today is nothing more then a paper tiger.

If you would have read it instead of catching the spin off CNN's cliff notes and letting them tell you what to think about it, maybe you wouldn't have to be handed the text.

Check out the link above. It has the entire report.

If you had read it and made such a thorough analysis surely you could use some text to back up your statements.
