New direction shouldn't come from Bush's coalition

In determining who has the best plan for our "new direction" in Iraq, I would like to make a suggestion to the president and anyone else involved in that decision-making process.
For four years, there have been those who have predicted correctly the "circumstances on the ground."
There were those who told us there were no WMDs, and they were right. There were those who told us how much the excursion would cost in United States dollars, and they were right. There were those who told us an occupation would result in a civil war, and they were right.
My suggestion is that we convene these people who seem to be well-grounded and accurate and ask their suggestions for a new direction in Iraq rather than gather another coalition of the willing who will tell the president what he wants to hear.
But, that would be logical - something of which this administration seems incapable.
