Nothing fazes you anymore, right? How about this:
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.

And how do you think the report will be interpreted? It surely won’t mention the latest news from Iraq: over 200 dead in the war’s second-deadliest attack. Will it have any relation with reality, or will it just be more propaganda? I think we all know the answer.
Fun game: try and find either of these stories on a conservative web site.
The totals are still rising, but you can now call that attack the deadliest on a single area, with at least 250 killed and 350 wounded. Surging toward progress . . .
