Iraq Round-Up!

If you haven't yet signed up for my weekly War on Iraq newsletter yet, I don't know what you're waiting for. If you don't then al Qaeda wins -- it's really that simple.

And onto the round-up …

The big story this week was a whole new wave of spin coming out of DC suggesting that the escalation of troops begun this spring is showing results and the tide is finally turning, the light's showing at end of the tunnel, etc., ad stupidem.

It began with an op-ed by "liberal hawks" Michael O'Hanlon and Ken Pollack, who the media bizarrely embraced as war opponents returned from Iraq who were just so moved by the progress they saw that they just had to reverse course and support Bush the continuing occupation the troops. That, of course is nonsense -- the two have been consistent cheerleaders for the war since the get-go.
