You could say that

But you really shouldn't. From Defense Secretary Robert "Kool-Aid good" Gates.
Asked whether the planned nominations by Mr. Bush were a sign that American policy was to “stay the course” in Iraq, Defense Secretary Robert M. Gates said that the security gains that had been achieved under General Petraeus’s command meant that “staying that course is not a bad idea.”
That implies that there is a course despite having been witness to a totally improvisational war. After spending years planning step 1 to get into Iraq, the neocons came to realize that they had no step 2. All the talk of tactical success makes it obvious that there is still no strategic goal involved and that is the heart of the US disaster in Iraq. Maybe, Mr Secretary, it would be better to find a course.
