KERIK AND IRAQ....I'm personally neutral on the question of whether former New York police commissioner Bernard Kerik is the right guy to head up the Homeland Security Department. I just don't know enough about the guy.

But Josh Marshall is right to focus on the most glaring issue in his record: the fact that he scurried home to New York a mere 14 weeks after heading to Baghdad to rebuild Iraq's police force. No good reason was ever given for this, and the idea that this was the plan all along is both laughable on its face and contradicted by his own statements.

So what happened?
