what are we doing in Iraq?

President Bush and his senior military and foreign policy advisers are beginning to discuss a "post-surge" strategy for Iraq that they hope could gain bipartisan political support. The new policy would focus on training and advising Iraqi troops rather than the broader goal of achieving a political reconciliation in Iraq, which senior officials recognize may be unachievable within the time available.

... beginning to discuss... training and advising Iraqi troops...

Shouldn't have this been happening already? Let's send the troops first, and then discuss what they'll do. Does this make any sense? Short answer, no.
