The Washington Monthly is back kicking around the unaskable question - will there be permanent U.S. bases in Iraq? The bloggers there have noted that, in the American media at least, the words "permanent", "bases" and "Iraq" must never appear in the same article, let alone the same sentence. However, the U.S. is set to build four super-bases anyway and it appears Rep. Barbara Lee (D-Calif) and other Democrats are going to try to make some political hay by bringing up the unaskable question at next week's debate on the war.
