How incoherent on Iraq must the Democrats be if Dick Holbrooke won’t even say what his policy preference is? This is Holbrooke from the Post this morning: “I’m not prepared to lay out a detailed policy or strategy. It’s not something that you can expect in a situation that is moving this fast and has the level of details you’re looking for.” Holbrooke is one of my favorite Dems on foreign policy because he is so smart and tough, but he hasn’t heretofore been noted for his humility. Has he ever before not had an answer to something? He goes on to talk about establishing goals in Iraq, but his vagueness is a sign that Democrats either don’t know what they think on Iraq, or are still afraid to say whatever it might be out loud.
