There's a lot of discussion about how long the US should occupy Iraq. It all seems to hinge on how long Iraqi gratitude will last or when a functional local government can be constituted. However, there doesn't seem to be much discussion of how much the search for WMD figures in to this. It's really not clear how long it would take the US, even with Iraqi cooperation, to complete the search. I, for one, want to know that we've done a reasonably thorough search before we greatly reduce our military presence. While the destruction of WMD wasn't the only reason for the invasion, it was as important as any of the others so we should see that through as well.
