The Baker Report: One More Thought

Criticism of the Iraq Study Group report is blazing from all sides. It ranges from "its too pie in the sky" to "it retreads the same old policy" to "its just face saving for a failed administration". There is some validity to all of these points. David Gergen on the other hand is one of the few persons to view the report as unabashedly positive.

To paraphrase his key statement, imagine how many lives would have been saved if a report like this had been published in 1968.

Isn't that really the bottom line?
