Back Channels: Despite Iraq successes, U.S. has more to do

As the election heats up, with the revelation of ACORN voter fraud, Obama's contributions to the sub-prime lending disaster that we as taxpayers are being forced to fix, Iraq has fallen off the radar.

I suggest that my readers take a moment to read and reflect on this statement:
It's tempting to look at the successes of the last two years and say: "That's enough. Let the Iraqis take it from here."

But if Iraq isn't ready to keep the pressure on al-Qaeda and other extremists, and those groups can roll back security gains, governmental and political progress will be lost, too. Officials will be focused on survival, not public service.
