Let the Plotting Begin

Bush dusts off veto pen for Iraq bill - 24 Apr 2007 at 12:37pm - President Bush on Tuesday again threatened to veto any bill that includes "arbitrary" timetables for withdrawal, calling the proposed Democratic measure a "political statement" that is "wrong for our country." "It makes no sense to tell the enemy when you start to plan withdrawing," Bush said at the White House. "If we're to do so, the enemy would simply mark their calendars and begin plotting how to take over a country when we leave."
I hate to be the one to have to break it to him, but it's possible "the enemy" has already begun plotting. For some reason, I thought the plan was for Iraqis, not "the enemy", to take over the country when the U.S. leaves, or perhaps, before the U.S. leaves. Who's in charge of Iraq now: the Iraqi government? General Petraeus? The "enemy"?
