IRAQ -- CONSERVATIVE SENATOR WARNS 'WE'RE IN MORE TROUBLE TODAY' IN IRAQ THAN EVER BEFORE:
President Bush continues to paint an upbeat picture of the war in Iraq. In his recent State of the Union address, Bush said that he has a "clear plan for victory" and "we are in this fight to win, and we are winning." But on Sunday's CNN Late Edition, Republican Sen. Chuck Hagel (NE) sounded a different note: "[T]hings haven't gone the way the administration said and others said it was going to go. In fact, I think we're in more trouble today than we've ever been in Iraq." On the same program, former Iraqi prime minister Ayad Allawi said he is "worried" about a civil war erupting in the country.
