Reid: "The Clock is Ticking, Mr. President"

Incoming Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) laid it on the line with George W. Bush in a Huffington Post column yesterday, saying "It's a civil war and America should not be policing a Sunni-Shia conflict."

An excerpt:
"It's been two weeks since the Iraq Study Group released its plan to change the course and bring our troops home. Since then, the President has been on a fact finding tour of his own administration -- apparently ignoring the facts presented by those in the military who know best. The President needs to put forth a plan as soon as possible, one that reflects the reality on the ground in Iraq and that withdraws our troops from the middle of this deadly civil war.
Seems pretty straightforward to me.
