Of course, we MUST blame Bush. Fareed Zakaria: Who lost Iraq? The Iraqis did, with an assist from George W. Bush;  Be sure to read the comments.  I did not see any mention of Bremer, nor did I see any mention of the overall vote in Congress when so many Democrats supported going into Iraq.  Of course, our poor little Prez is barely mentioned as to having any blame.

In the same edition of the Washington Post we get this from Ignatius: Maliki’s failure has been increasingly obvious since the elections of 2010, when the Iraqi people in their wisdom elected a broader, less-sectarian coalition. But the Obama administration, bizarrely working in tandem with Iran, brokered a deal that allowed Maliki to continue and has worked with him as an ally against al-Qaeda. Maliki’s coalition triumphed in April’s elections, but the balloting was boycotted by Sunnis.  I guess Zakaria had no knowledge of these facts.  Blame Bush that will work.
