Petraeus isn't writing that report.
It's in the MSM, but easy to miss. The spotlight is on his anticipated and wholly non-binding recommendations.
This is one more whitewash and lie that in another time or place might inspire the people to do something about it.
Despite Bush's repeated statements that the report will reflect evaluations by Petraeus and Ryan Crocker, the U.S. ambassador to Iraq, administration officials said it would actually be written by the White House, with inputs from officials throughout the government.
And though Petraeus and Crocker will present their recommendations on Capitol Hill, legislation passed by Congress leaves it to the president to decide how to interpret the report's data.
"legislation passed by Congress"!
Who could have predicted? :mad:
I heard on the radio that Condi would report
A caller wondered if Condi had any clue what was going on- "she mostly just repeats the same old talking point".
God forbid any semblance of truth gets into the report.
I heard the blind lemmings say it is going "swimmingly".
