Rats deserting sinking ship...
You know it's bad news for the Bush Administration and their cronies when one of their more loyal supporters, Moonie Press International, publishes an article that begins like this:
Hard to find good news in Iraq
By Martin Sieff
UPI Senior News Analyst
Published July 29, 2005
WASHINGTON -- It was another very bad week indeed in Iraq:
A roadside bomb killed four U.S. soldiers from the Georgia National Guard; 16 Iraqi government workers were killed when their buses traveling together were machine-gunned by insurgents and two Algerian diplomats kidnapped by al-Qaida in Iraq were killed.
In addition, a U.S. Government Accountability Office report issued Thursday documented the impact of the insurgency in seriously derailing reconstruction efforts. And a psychiatric survey concluded that Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, a serious mental illness, was 10 times more prevalent in American combat veterans from Iraq than had been previously thought.
The s*** has hit the fan. And some of the rats, at least, seem to have noticed.

See, you're being fooled, Penguin. You only think the news in Iraq is going badly, because that's what those dastardly traitorous Fourth Estate Fifth Columnists want you to believe...you know, because they're all godless liberal socialists. And if there's one thing all godless liberal socialists love, it's crazed, murderous religious fanatics.
But don't worry, help is on the way. The best and brightest and bravest of our nation's talk radio hosts have already descended on Iraq to launch the Truth Tour (tm.) From the brutal front lines of their hotel rooms in the heavily-fortified Green Zone of Baghdad, the will tell us the real story of how we actually are winning, and how the Iraqis are actually showering us with flowers everywhere we go.
Come to think of it, though, the Truth Tour (tm) launched several weeks ago. So the news should already be filled with glowing stories of victory. What's the holdup? Hearts and minds, bitches!
