Interesting Times, Indeed

George Packer's reaction to the O'Hanlon/Pollack op-ed yesterday was a good deal more measured than mine, but his eyebrow's raised at this:

As of a few weeks ago, O’Hanlon advocated a partition of Iraq and Pollack was talking about containing the civil war within Iraq’s borders. Neither of them had much faith that the Administration’s strategy could succeed. Have they changed their minds? If so, what’s their political strategy for sustaining the surge into 2008?

Good questions.
