Senate Says: Do As We Say, Not As We Do!

So the Senate now says it wants regular updates on Iraq. Or, as the NY Times.com headline reads "Senate Votes To Demand Regular Iraq Updates From White House". This couldn't be related to that whole pre-war intelligence brouhaha I've been hearing so much about, could it? Not according to the bill's sponsor, John Warner. According to the Times, "the message Iraqis should take from the Senate action, Mr. Warner said, is that "we have stood with you, we have done our part," and now it is time for them to do theirs."

Right, the Senate wants regular updates from the White House on Iraq to make sure that the Iraqis are properly governing their country. Uh huh.

Frankly, I'd rather the Senate do a little more governing in the United States -- perhaps they need a more regular update from the White House, I don't know -- and let the Iraqis take care of Iraq. I mean, I don't know what Mr. Warner considers "our part" in Iraq, but I think the US Senate, through action and inaction, has done quite enough "for" Iraq.
