A narrow majority of Americans now favor setting a deadline for the withdrawal of U.S. forces in Iraq and a record number say they disapprove of the war, according to an ABC News/Washington Post poll released on Monday.
I don't care whether you support the war in Iraq or not, tying the withdrawal to a calendar instead of progress on the ground is stupid. Go ahead and schedule the withdrawal for 1 October 2007. And go ahead and stake out your seats now for the Al Qaeda Victory Parade on 2 October 2007. Calendars are useless of these types of missions.
