    Well, maybe Iraq isn't critical in the war on terror after all 

    President Bush repeats again and again that he will not cut and run in Iraq, that U.S. troops will stay until the country is safe for democracy (or at least for oil extraction).

    Not so, says Robert Novak, Chicago Sun-Times columnist.

    At the moment when Democrat John Kerry has begun to spellout the details of what he would do with the Iraq war if elected president - including beginning to bring troops home by summer 2005 - Novak suggests that ``well-placed sources in the administration are confident Bush's decision will be to get out'' of Iraq after a post-election reassessment.

    Take this trial balloon for what it is worth. Novak, remember, is the guy who outed CIA operative Valerie Plame, a blotch on responsible journalism that makes Dan Rather look like Edward R. Murrow.
