The new National Intelligence Estimate doesn’t present an encouraging outlook for Iraq. It indicates that the United States has little control over what happens and that there is a strong possibility that the security situation "will continue to deteriorate at rates comparable to the latter part of 2006," the Washington Post reported. And even if Iraqi and coalition forces are able to reduce the level of violence — a big "if" — "Iraqi leaders will be hard-pressed to achieve sustained political reconciliation."
