Bush on Iraq
President Bush this morning offered an "unusually sober" (and unusually truthful) assessment of the war in Iraq: "acknowledging that the insurgency is getting worse, that newly trained Iraqi soldiers are fighting poorly at times and that the war's casualties are taking a heavy toll on military families." Where was that candor in the months leading up to the election? Has the President finally decided to read the morning papers?
Perhaps the President's belated recognition of reality was necessary given that -- with good reason -- the troops are complaining.
