"The Speech the President Should Give" By JOHN F. KERRY

TONIGHT President Bush will discuss the situation in Iraq. It's long past time to get it right in Iraq. The Bush administration is courting disaster with its current course - a course with no realistic strategy for reducing the risks to our soldiers and increasing the odds for success.

Getting out of this box won't be easy, but we owe it to our soldiers to make our best effort. Continued
