The Bush Study Group

Bush Initiates Iraq Policy Review Separate From Baker Group's.
The administration's new review "was not done in response to the ISG, but it came about as a result of everybody looking at facts on the ground," a State Department official said. But the administration is basically trying to do in one month what the ISG has done over eight months.
Condi is even cancelling a date for this one, and the military are going to submit their own "nothing is off the table" assessment. But is it so that Bush can:

(a) Ignore the Baker recommendations by pointing to his own findings, or

(b) Pretend that the Baker recommendations were actually his own?

Get ready for some interesting leaks.
