Everyone everywhere will be shredding this today.  This diary is a holding place for the actual plan, available here [CNN, .pdf]:

The following document articulates the broad strategy the President set forth in 2003  and provides an update on our progress as well as the challenges remaining.        

 “The United States has no intention of determining the precise form of Iraq’s new  government.  That choice belongs to the Iraqi people.  Yet, we will ensure that one  brutal dictator is not replaced by another.  All Iraqis must have a voice in the new  government, and all citizens must have their rights protected.    

Rebuilding Iraq will require a sustained commitment from many nations, including  our own: we will remain in Iraq as long as necessary, and not a day more.”    – President George W. Bush, February 26, 2003

Read ’em and weep.
