It's "Pick on Tom Friedman Month" at Northern Exposure!

Following up this post on the exploits of Thomas Friedman, I'm forced to call attention to this expose on his continued (and ongoing, and continued, and ongoing) use of the concept that "the next 6 months will really tell us what's going to happen in Iraq" and we should let the current situation "play out". Since Nov. 2003, the NY Times columnist has used a variation of that exact phrase at least a dozen times, in separate columns and interviews, dating up to May 11th, 2006. Each time, the turning point in understanding the situation in Iraq is just around the corner. Until a few months later, when the best-before date gets pushed back another few months. Frankly, it's pretty hilarious.
