War Without Timelines

Is it time to decide when the war should end? The President is adamant that he does not want any timelines or restrictions placed on his administration of the Iraqi War. My question is, where else do you ever see an organization that has leadership that is completely unaccountable and is not subject to performance standards and evaluation periods? And if you know of any of these organizations, how do they fare? Without any deadlines or accountability, any war efforts can go on without any sense of urgency or resolve. A timeline allows the U.S. to dictate what needs to be done and when. It also places the burden of effort on the Iraqi government to use any U.S. help to clear insurgents within that time frame. It even gives the American public a date with which they can expect their family members and spouses to begin coming home. A timeline or withdrawal date is the right thing to do for many reasons. Unfortunately, our president can't seem to understand reason or listen to the will of the American people.
