Yesterday and today we've seen the now routine spectacle of Petraeus and Crocker coming to Washington to tell Congress and the rest of us to butt out of their war-thing.

Not good news, given Ahmadinejads announcement that his scientists are putting 6,000 new uranium-enriching centrifuges in place."
