Bill Kristol: "'The president knows we have to win this war. If some of his subordinates are trying to find ways to escape from it, he needs to assert control over them, overrule them or replace them,' Kristol wrote. 'What the president needs to do now is tell the Pentagon to stop talking about (and planning for) withdrawal, and make sure they are planning for victory.'"
I've got news for Bill Kristol. The U.S. has lost the Iraq War. Not surprisingly, they are aware of that fact at the Pentagon. The Pentagon is planning on the only basis one can plan effectively, reality.
