More jaw-dropping denial from the right, aided by Fox News:
Although Neoneocon is hopeful for Iraq, she worries that Iraq is under the gun because President Bush, that great enabler of Iraqi success, will be out of office in 2009. Gee, he'll have had only 6 years to achieve victory; what great president could be blamed for failure operating under such ridiculously tight time constraints?
Neoneocon goes on to suggest that things are better in Iraq than either the western press or the American public realizes because we've all been manipulated by the sophisticated strategies of the public relations people at al-Qa'ida and the insurgency. Yes, they know how to play reporters from the NY Times, but they can't fool Neoneocon with all those bombings. That's because actual professional reporters don't know nearly as much about the war as New England's very own psychotherapist-expert on the war in Iraq. (note to Leo Burnett, step up recruiting efforts in Baghdad. There is a well-spring of untapped creative talent in the middle east.)
But, Neoneocon has been seeing success in Iraq since she began her blog and she has been talking about the blindness of those who don't for just as long. I would suggest that if we become any more successful in Iraq, there won't be anything left of Iraq at all.
