Open Thread: President Bush's Iraq Speech

Bush's speech. The advance on it is that he's going to promise to tear down Abu Ghraib prison and try to convince the American public that he has an exit plan from Iraq.

Nearly 800 U.S. service members have died since the beginning of military operations in Iraq last year, according to the Pentagon. And more than 5,500 Iraqi civilians have died violently in Baghdad and three provinces in the past year, an Associated Press count says.

There's nothing he can say that will satisfy us or make us think invading Iraq was a good idea. It was an unnecessary war that caused an unnecessary loss of life.

Did he convince any of you?

Update: Left Coaster asks the President, what about making sure we have a free America before claiming to be able to free Iraq?
