For a pretty commonsensical opinion on the Baker-Hamilton Commission's abject surrender to Iran and Syria, skip all the geriatrics on the commission and see this blog post by a 24-year old sergeant in the US reserves, T.F. Boggs, back in-country from his second tour of Iraq.
Kerry and Rangel are probably convinced he's halfway retarded, being a soldier and all, but Boggs is as flummoxed by the recommendations as I am:
The brainpower of the ISG has come up with a new direction for our country and that includes negotiating with countries whose people chant “Death to America” and whose leaders deny the Holocaust and call for Israel to be wiped from the face of the earth. Baker and Hamilton want us to get terrorists supporting countries involved in fighting terrorism! If I am the only one who finds something wrong with that then please let me know because right now I feel like I am the only person who feels this way.
