The Gray Lady Speaks - NYT Urges End to Iraq War

Today's Sunday New York Times in a sobering editorial titled "The Road Home" finally acknowledges the reality in Iraq by stating the obvious:

"It is time for the United States to leave Iraq, without any more delay than the Pentagon needs to organize an orderly exit."

It's about time! What took them so long? The Times goes on,

"A majority of Americans reached these conclusions months ago. Even in politically polarized Washington, positions on the war no longer divide entirely on party lines. When Congress returns this week, extricating American troops from the war should be at the top of its agenda."

Once again, the wisdom of the people leads the way.

The media awakens, slowly acknowledging the obvious.

After years of enabling a doomed policy, the fourth estate finally demands the "decision-makers" change course.

Now, the question lingers: Will the politicians finally listen?

It's time to tell this administration we've "Had Enough."
