Withdrawal, Withdrawal, I love you, Withdrawal. You're always a Friedman away!
What Atrios said
The basic content of what Obama is saying [withdrawal in 4-6 months], divorced from the larger debate, is fine, but as to how it plays in the current debate it's not fine. It allows us to wait around one more Friedman... and then something will happen. Except it won't happen. Troops will not start coming home 4-6 months from now. And, most likely, 4-6 months from now Obama won't be saying "bring them home now," though I've put him on my little calendar and will make sure to check back then and let you know.
