So much for 14 months

The New York Times and the Washington Post lead with previews of the Bush administration's forthcoming plan to increase the breadth and depth of America's commitment to the Iraq war. The plan, provisionally titled "A New Way Forward," will send 20,000 additional troops to Iraq over the next several months in an attempt to stabilize Baghdad...The troop increase would largely mean extending the tours of soldiers already in Iraq and cutting the stateside time of those who have rotated out.

Oh, and this doesn't sound like "a new way forward" to me. It sounds like the same way as before. And they wonder why enlistment is down.
