Surprise, Surprise...

Washington Post:
During a White House meeting last week, a group of governors asked President Bush and Marine Gen. Peter Pace, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, about their backup plan for Iraq. What would the administration do if its new strategy didn't work?

The conclusion they took away, the governors later said, was that there is no Plan B. "I'm a Marine," Pace told them, "and Marines don't talk about failure. They talk about victory."

Pace had a simple way of summarizing the administration's position, Gov. Phil Bredesen (D-Tenn.) recalled. "Plan B was to make Plan A work."
Because, you know, the Bush Administration has such a fine record of setting and achieving goals. No contingency plans ever needed. To be fair, this story seems to presume there actually is a plan A, which, for this Administration, would be a first...
