from the new york times:

Bush Asserts That Victory in Iraq Is Still ‘Achievable’

…..the president showed no indication that he was inclined to change goals or pull out of Iraq.
“Victory in Iraq is achievable,” Mr. Bush said, addressing reporters in the ornate Indian Treaty Room across the street from the White House, in a historic office building once used by the Navy. He added, “Our goal remains a free and democratic Iraq that can govern itself, sustain itself and defend itself and is an ally in the war on terror.”

so, let me me get this straight. the response to the iraq study group is to not only ignore it’s recommendations, but to do the opposite, increase troop levels.

it's like a scene out of 'black adder goes forth'...
