HANDOVER=ROLLOVER:

Let's Hear It for the Handover: Finally, Bush does something right in Iraq. (Fred Kaplan, June 28, 2004, Slate)

It was a smart move to transfer sovereignty to Iraq today, two days ahead of schedule. If the Bush administration keeps doing things this smart over the next several months, the transition to self-rule might go more smoothly than anyone has had reason to suspect.

Finally? If he's listened to the Fred Kaplans of the world Saddam Hussein would still be sovereign.

The conventional wisdom is "never wrong". The absolute lack of remorse for poor prognostication by the likes of Fred Kaplan must have garden-variety psychopaths taking notes.
