Bush to Detail Iraq Plan, Admit Mistakes in Tonight's Speech The White House said today that "a vast majority of the American people are not satisfied with the progress in Iraq" and that "President Bush is in their camp." In tonight's speech , President Bush will commit 21,000 new troops to Iraq, contingent on its government meeting "benchmarks" and "milestones." He'll also admit strategic mistakes and say that US operations have been "handcuffed by political interference" from the Iraqi government. We get a preview of tonight's speech from Yochi Dreazen of the Wall Street Journal and Rick Klein of the Boston Globe.
