here we go ‘round in circles

President Bush was “briefed” by his Secretaries of Defense and State today and announced that Iraq had reached a “turning point.”

Now, I’m not sure I have the computer skills to check this out, but it seems to me that this is, like, the eighth time Bush has declared that Iraq had reached a “turning point,” and I’m just wondering: With all that turning, in what direction is Iraq now headed?

Plus: take a look at that picture of the brain trust—look at each of their faces—Does Gen. Pace look like a man brimming with optimism? Does Don of the Dead look like believes a damn thing Bush is saying? Does Bush look like he knows what he’s saying? Does Condi look like Bush knows what he’s saying? (Photo: Doug Mills/NYT)
