Don't miss further incisive commentary from Spencer Ackerman and Greg Sargent. Plus more Ackerman where he reports Lee Hamilton's statement that "We have one last chance at making Iraq work, and, more importantly, one last chance to unite this country on this war."

Yes, avoiding political dispute about the war is more important than adopting a good war policy. No doubt Hamilton would deny that's actually what he believes, but I think we can put this in the Freudian slip file.
