Everyone is spinning the Iraq mission's so-called end but no one seems willing quite to accept defeat. Republicans are complaining that the president didn't mention George W. Bush often enough in his speech announcing the end of combat operations. In fact, he did, quite a bit, and in an over-generous way, most sane people agree. As GRITtv commentator Bill Fletcher, Jr. put it Wednesday, "Iraq wasn't a case of a war gone bad with good intentions--it was begun illegally and handled wrong from the start."
