No one wants the job.

An essential post at Polical Animal:
"The Washington Post reports that the White House is casting about for a "high-powered czar" who would have authority over both military and civilian operations in Iraq and Afghanistan. Only problem is, no one wants the job."
What it comes down to, of course, is that no one in their right mind (no one sane that is), would want the responsibility for Iraq and Afghanistan without the power to do something about it. The only course of action, at this point, is to withdraw from Iraq and reinfoce Afghanistan.
