Office to distribute data ahead of military progress report due in Sept.
WASHINGTON - Shaping the Bush administration’s message on the Iraq war has taken on new fervor, just as anticipation is building for the September progress report from top military advisers.Now we all no what this will be - all good news all of the time.
For the Pentagon, getting out Iraq information will now include a 24-hour-a-day, seven-day-a-week Iraq Communications Desk that will pump out data from Baghdad — serving as what could be considered a campaign war room.

- Iraq is not going to have a functional government in the lifetime of anyone over 50.
- The Sunnis in Anbar who are now cooperating with the US to eliminate AQI will turn on the US troops as soon as the AQ threat is diminished.
- The largely Shi'ite US trained Iraqi military will turn on the US troops as soon as Bush/Cheney do the unthinkable and attack Iran.
- The US military is demoralized and broken after over four years in the meat grinder that is Iraq.
