The Commander-in-Chief lands on a carrier emblazoned with a "Mission Accomplished" banner.

The major rationale for the invasion of Iraq - that Saddam Hussein stockpiled WMDs - has been completely discredited.

The other rationale - that he was in league with Al Qaeda - has also been discredited - most recently by Petraeus himself in an answer to a US congressman. Al Qaeda is now firmly entrenched in Iraq - primarily as a consequence of American action.

American intelligence failures in Iraq have been acknowledged by the Whitehouse and by George Bush on more than one occasion.
