Too Little Too Late?

Thomas E. Ricks has an excellent feature story in today's WaPo on how the 4th ID has developed new tactics for fighting against the insurgents around Baghdad. His conclusions are succinctly stated in his final two grafs:

"I would like to think that there are still possibilities here," Army Reserve Lt. Col. Joe Rice said in the coffee shop of the al-Rashid Hotel in Baghdad's Green Zone. "We are finally getting around to doing the right things," said Rice, who is working on an Army "lessons learned" project here but who was expressing his personal opinion. "I think we're getting better, I do."

But, he continued, "is it too little too late?"

I bloody well hope not, both for our sake and for the Iraqi people.
