It’s the third anniversary of the invasion of Iraq. Where do we stand?

The N.Y. Times calls the undertaking a miserable, botched fiasco.

Iraq’s former interim prime minister, Iyad Allawi, calls the sectarian violence “civil war.”

An L.A. Times reporter says that Bush is working to lower expectations in Iraq.

Donald Rumsfeld, writing in the Washington Post, sees the occupation through rose-colored glasses.

A BBC reporter gives a “glass-half-full / glass-half-empty” reading, but the headline uses the word “bleak.”
