When leading Israeli dove Shimon Peres calls the ISG's conclusions "wishful thinking" you know the jig is up -- the ISG is simply a farce.
Need more proof?
Shortly after it was released on Wednesday, a spokeswoman for the Syrian Foreign Ministry, Buthaina Shaaban, told the BBC and Al-Jazeera that Syria appreciated how the report placed American policy in a regional context. A day later, Iran's official news service quoted Foreign Minister Manouchehr Mottaki as saying an American exit from Iraq would be the best step toward stabilizing the country.
When the enemies of the US are "appreciative" and salute the report's conclusions, then you know the ISG work is rubbish. Reprint the report on toilet tissue and let the American people use it for its only real purpose.
