Cogent Analysis of Iraq Options

There's a great op-ed piece in today's Washington Post by retired General William Odom. In it, it spells out great reasons why getting the U.S. out of Iraq is the key to getting beyond the mess:
The first and most critical step is to recognize that fighting on now simply prolongs our losses and blocks the way to a new strategy. Getting out of Iraq is the pre-condition for creating new strategic options.
I highly recommend reading the whole thing. [hat tip to the TPM crew]

Oh, and here's a hint: the title of the piece is "Victory is Not an Option."
