The author comments on the ongoing blame game in Washington regarding the Iraqi war. When President George W. Bush vetoed a spending bill for the Iraqi war that included a timetable for withdrawal, he and the Democratic leaders in Congress declared a desire to find a common ground to support U.S. forces in Iraq. However, those who participated in forming this strategy have already begun to shift blames to other participants.
