11/29/2005: HOLY Jumping Jee-Hosie-phat...
...I just heard a CNN commentator make an EXTRAORDINARY statement about ole Child-In-Chief plans to try to shore-up the sagging support for his Iraqi *Sucess* (which everyone who hasn't been on Planet GOPHUCKyerslef Knows is tanking in the polls).
CIC: " ... I'm interested in winning...hehehehee...I want to defeat the terrorists ...hehehehee. And I want our troops to come home but I don't want em to come home without achieving a strategy for victory. We've got a strategy for victory."
Dana Bash: "... What the White House insists we'll see at Annapolis is the President giving more details in than he has before on how the US expects to get that victory the President talked about. And he will focus on Iraqi's and how they are stablizing their country. Specifically about security. Perhaps we'll even hear the President *admit* that the US didn't have it *right* in terms of how they were training Iraqi forces in the beginning, but he will tell how specifically they are doing at this point."
Nicole Wallace: (White House Com. Director): "Currently 120 batallions of Iraqi security forces are on the ground in Iraq. 40 of them are leading missions. And once the conditions are met for Iraqis' to secure their fledgling democracy, American troops will come home."
Dana Bash: "'American troops will come home'...you just heard that from Nicole Wallace. That obviously is the underlying theme here. The President will not explicitly say THAT and he will actually outright reject, as we heard him say today, a specific timetable for withdrawal of troops. But by talking specifically about the Iraqis, how they are stabilizing their country, that is what the President will be trying to imply. That the US can possibly, if this trend continues, that he can lay out that they can possibly start to come home - and from the Pentagon, that there are plans in place, conditions based plans, we hear that from the Pentagon and the White House, for that to happen.
And one more thing, Wolf, the White House understands that what Americans want to hear is that there IS a Plan and we're gonna see them "Declassify" something that they say is a PLAN they say has been in Place for a couple of years. To lay out short term, medium term and long term goals for getting to that victory they say they can get to in Iraq."
So, the NEW strategy for VICTORY is a *Classified Secret Plan* the White House has had in place for a *COUPLE of YEARS*...
F**K I think I'm gonna go throw up someplace.
OH, and Yeah Right... this a PLAN they've had all along.
