Training Iraqi troops no longer driving force in U.S. policy

Remember that bullshit line....."When they stand up, we can stand down"....just another example of totally fucked up planning!

WASHINGTON - Military planners have abandoned the idea that standing up Iraqi troops will enable American soldiers to start coming home soon and now believe that U.S. troops will have to defeat the insurgents and secure control of troubled provinces.
Training Iraqi troops, which had been the cornerstone of the Bush administration's Iraq policy since 2005, has dropped in priority, officials in Baghdad and Washington said.

This was in the Bee this week, buried in the first section. The "as they stand up, we'll stand down" is thrown on the HUGE heap of other lies Bush's puppeteers have made him tell.
