Bob Schieffer, on Face the Nation yesterday:

Well it seems to me that this [the recent fighting in Basra and Baghdad] is going beyond the reasons that America went to Iraq, and that was to provide, you know... establish some sort of stable democracy in this part of the world, to help the Iraqis put down these terrorists that were a threat to the United States. Now we have this militia fighting, it's all about the neighborhood, it seems to be now, much more so than it is about Iraq.
[Emphasis added to illustrate Bob Schieffer's tenuous grasp on recent history.] Way to be CBS's chief Washington correspondent, Bob!
