    It's Working? That Old Line Again? Since the war in Iraq began, the Bush administration has repeatedly insisted that their strategy "is working." And each time, it's been false. Now they're pulling out the same tired line again, but Americans know better. Do they really expect us to believe them this time? According to the Washington Times, the final Bush report that Petraeus will be presenting to the Congress next week will not be based on any written presentation by the General. In fact, it states that the only thing he will have written are his opening remarks to the...

    August 20, 2007 The White House said Monday that Gen. David Petraeus likely will testify before Congress on the sixth anniversary of the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks. A spokesman for President Bush, Gordon Johndroe, reiterated that Petraeus, the commander of U.S. troops in Iraq, and Ryan Crocker, U.S. ambassador to Iraq, would testify in open hearings. They will answer lawmakers’ questions about the situation in Iraq, the success of the troop surge and the next steps to be taken. The highly anticipated report from Petraeus and Crocker is seen as a potential turning point in America’s involvement in Iraq....

    It's no wonder that sensible people just shake their heads and wonder what's wrong with the extremists of the far left when they come up with such off the wall nonsense and then try to pass it off as real political analysis. It just makes people who have even the slightest clue about what is really going on in the world double over with laughter. Such is the case with today's comedic attempt at political forecasting by nut in residence Ed Garvey of the Madison, Wisconsin Capital Times. Columnist Garvey, in true nutroots fashion, thinks he has hit on the...

    Petraeus was accidentally shot and nearly killed in a 1991 training exercise. The bullet just missed his heart. Physician and future Republican Sen. Bill Frist of Tennessee operated for five hours to save him.

    May 01, 2007 Gen. David Petraeus recently returned from Iraq to brief the leaders of our government about the war there. Perhaps most notably, he took direct aim at the "Iraq is in a civil war" mantra of the media and Democratic leaders by stating that "80 percent to 90 percent of the suicide attacks" - the spectacular car bombings racking up the horrific fatalities - are carried out by foreign fighters who are al Qaeda members or affiliated with al Qaeda. At nearly the same time, Senator Chuck Hagel (R-NE) sat down at an interview with Robert Novak for...
