Pres. Bush is in a lot of trouble. The WOT is blowing up in his face, the domestic spying scandal refuses to go away, The step down by his administration on the Dubai port deal, Michael Brown refusing to take the blame on the Katrina debacle, etc. etc. etc.
The whole edifice rests on the WOT, of course so the PR blitz that he and his administration are going through these days is all about how well things are going in Iraq. For the month or so, that’s what he and his staff have been doing. Pointing out how well Iraq is progressing and how the responsibility of governing Iraq is being transferred to the Iraqis.
And then you see something absolutely outrageous like this, you have to wonder, does this administration and it’s leader have any soul left?
I was reading the little scrolling news headlines on the bottom of the page…. Suddenly, one of them caught my attention and I sat up straight on the sofa, wondering if I had read it correctly….The line said:
“The Ministry of Defence requests that civilians do not comply with the orders of the army or police on nightly patrols unless they are accompanied by coalition forces working in that area.”
