I just wrote a very long post complete with linky and quoty thingies and everything as it went into spell-check hell.
I'll sum it up-
There were two messages that came out of Iraq last week.
The first was reported by the Christian Science Monitor and described an Al-Qaeda memo (To: all insurgents From: Zarqawi Re: Misc. Items. Order 3" post-its and staples, brew another pot of coffee if you drink the last cup and blow up a bus) which purportedly described a deteriorating situation for the insurgency in which they were becoming less and less safe by the day. They warned that if they didn't get help they wouldn't be long for Iraq.
The other was a memo that the Washington Post got hold of from the U.S. Ambassador to Iraq describing a deteriorating situation in which they, and Iraqi workers at the embassy, were becoming less and less safe by the day. They warned that if they didn't get help they wouldn't be long for Iraq.
Right-wing radio personalities, chickenhawk conservative bloggers and blowhard congressional Republicans were faced with a dilemma. Do they believe the word of our mortal enemies; the Al-Qaeda terrorists, or do they believe the word of our own representatives in Iraq?
They go with the terrorists, of course.
