12:35 today - the BLOGGING FROM BAGHDAD guy


My own Rumsfeld 1:20pm briefing notes…
Fallujah is “being contained” .. enemy trying to “break the will of the American people” .. they are failing .. our coalition has more than 30 nations and they are standing firm ..
Now ABOUT 137K US TROOPS IN IRAQ .. we’ve approved extension of “roughly 20K forces” up to an additional 90 days in Iraq and up to 120 days total deployment .. if more capability is needed in Iraq the current plan is to replace the extended troops with forces from other parts of the world ..
Q: To whom will coalition turn over power?
A: paraphrase, the UN will help figure that out
Q: for Gen. Peter Pace - Is another "heavy division" necessary?
A: para: the generals are getting what they asked for
Q: What's going on in Najaf and Fallujah? Etc...
A: para - It was Iraqis who decided al-Sadr should be arrested .. his paper was closed in accordance with standard procedure .. (Gen. Pace said Marines in Fallujah are deeper and deeper into the city .. US trying to be humane ..)
Q: How many Fallujah civilians killed?
A: para - What al Jazeera claims is that hundreds of civilians have been killed. Rumsfeld: what they are doing is "Vicious, inaccurate and inexcusable.!" but did not give a number himself because "we are not in the city."

Blogging from Baghdad
Rahul Mahajan mini bio
From the blog:
April 14, 11:45 am EST. Baghdad, Iraq -- Some people who have read my eyewitness reports confirming U.S. sniping at ambulances in Fallujah have written to accuse me of "having an agenda" and therefore lying about what I saw. Others have written to accuse me of being an Iraqi or of having a non-European name and therefore lying about what I saw. They are a very small minority of those who have written, but, because a picture apparently is still worth 1000 words: (and the blog has links to more photos)


Brad's Ten-Foot Poll RESULT

As an ex college debater there is no mystery about what occurred. Our godly president was given canned responses to potential questions by the pinko, commie press. This is a very old idea. The difference is that GWB plugged the preprogrammed answers into the wrong questions and got so confused that he started plugging variations of the same response into all of the questions.
This is what happens when you have a leader with the depth of a dry creek bed in mid-August. Don't get me wrong, Clinton would have done the same thing, but his oral skills are so superior that a good deal more of the public would have believed him. At least he could have plugged round canned retorts into round canned queries.
The response of your radio audience merely proves that the Clinton haters have now turned into Bush fawners, but no more gray matter has grown between their ears in the ensuing years. The same can be said of the Clinton apologists, now the Bush haters. Damn, it's hard to think logically these days
