Mission Accomplished

No mention of the increasing civilian death toll.
No mention of the fact that the Iraqi government is all but collapsed.
No mention of the possibility of a coup.
No mention of the 725 additional American deaths.
No mention the Bush had to fly in on the QT because of the chaos.
No mention that Bush didn't dare go anywhere near Baghdad.

During Bush's "surprise" visit to Iraq yesterday, he said:

...if the kind of success we are now seeing continues, it will be possible to maintain the same level of security with fewer American forces.

But what are the headlines this morning?

  • Bush: More Gains in Iraq Could Lead to Drawdown ...Washington Post
  • Bush, In Iraq, Says Troop Reduction Is Possible...New York Times
  • Bush Hints at Troop Reductions...Atlanta Journal-Constitution
  • Bush Hints at Iraq Drawdown if Gains Continue...Chicago Tribune
Those headlines tell you the whole story of the media in this country. If the White House says it then it must be repeated without modification or question. No facts Mam...just more lies and half truths.
