Playing a Real Bad Hand

Zuckerman, Mortimer B.
January 2007
U.S. News & World Report;1/22/2007, Vol. 142 Issue 3, p72
The author reflects on and offers opinion on United States George W. Bush's new strategy for dealing with the Iraq war. He argues that if Bush had listened to advisers earlier the current military crisis in Iraq could have been avoided and the need for a new strategy would not have existed. He suggests that Bush's past mistakes in the handling of Iraq have deeply affected the citizens and Congress of the United States.
