Revise revise revise (video)

Turns out the secret to good writing revise revise revise is also the secret to approximating competence when it comes to the administration.

As John Amato points out:


We saw in the recent discussion on FOX- asking the question-"All-Out Civil War in Iraq: Could It Be a Good Thing?"
If civil war is such a good thing, why did Bush proclaim in 2005:
"They failed to incite an Iraqi civil war?... for the sake of our nation's security, this will not happen on my watch." [VIDEO]
Aside from the heart-stopping crack a few eggs to make an omelet idiocy of the Fox-en, how astonishing is it that the president is about to come clean on how incompetent he is when it comes to promises, security, honesty? I'm ready.

As for whether there is a civil war or not, just Google civil war in Iraq and do some reading. Half of the decidedly centrist Council on Foreign Relations experts thought it was already Civil War back in September. Back in 2004, CIA agents were warning of a developing Civil War. In May, 2005, security experts were calling it Civil War.

If there’s civil war in Iraq, how will we know it? asked John Burns in the New York Times... When Fox and the Bush administration can spin it as a positive development. See above... (Crooks&Liars)
