WASHINGTON, Jan. 10 — President Bush will announce tonight that he is sending more than 21,000 American troops to Iraq to quell the violence there, while conceding for the first time that he provided neither enough troops nor enough resources to control the chaos in Iraq last year…
Mr. Bush and his top advisers are acutely aware that their new strategy, only 13 months after they unveiled a “Plan for Victory” that was never executed, marks the last chance that the president may have to get Iraq right.
The speech begins at 6 p.m. PST. Details on his new plan here.
UPDATE: Over at Horsesass, Rep. Adam Smith (D-WA) rejects the president’s plan in advance of the speech.
