The escalation in Iraq - "Least bad option"

According to the NY Times (found in Raw Story) the White House sat around discussion options in Iraq, eliminating the worst ones, and ended up with the escalation of troops that Bush announced Tuesday as "The least bad option."

It's a shame they didn't put that much effort into considering options a few years ago when it might have been useful. It's also interesting that this is the same option that the National Security Council Chief Hadley proposed in a memo last November.
