What’s Going On?

At the moment, no one outside the Administration’s inner circle really knows, but it seems clear that our military planners are hopeful of a more or less bloodless victory. It is still not known whether last night’s attack killed or disabled Saddam Hussein, but military sources say they had good reason to think he was at the location that was attacked. Meanwhile, Iraqi forces appear to be without direction, either because top officials have been killed or disabled, or because Iraq’s command and control system has been technically disrupted. Some months from now we will find out what is really going on; in the meantime, about all we can say is that the Administration hopes regime change can be accomplished with surprising ease; if that turns out not to be true, the war will go on.
