The Washington Post has a solid editorial praising Secretary of Defense Robert Gates for being willing to adjust his policy to the needs of our generals in Iraq. The generals require troops to remain in the country longer than Gates originally desired, and Gates thinks they should stay so that we don’t forfeit the gains of the past six months. The Post agrees, and also wonders why the Democratic presidential candidates have not altered their policy proposals to reflect the current situation. The Post has run a variation on this editorial before, but it’s good to see again.
