How dumb does Fred Hiatt think we are? Apparently, pretty damn stupid if he expects anyone to take this White House memo seriously. He claims in his "editorial" that "[a] large majority of senators from both parties favor a shift in the U.S. mission." Well, I see the Republicans' lips moving but they're only willing to vote for toothless amendments that do nothing to rein in our reckless president and actually change the course of the failed occupation strategy.
Hiatt laughably lays the blame on Reid for endangering our national security by answering to the will of the people. He should look in a mirror. What endangers this country the most is this sort of GOP stenography that attempts to justify the Republicans' obstructionism.
