The wingnuts are petrified. Seriously and completely freaked out.
They want everyone to keep quiet. Quit reporting. Mums the word.
Have these idiots never heard of a controlled leak before?
A headline at Huffington Post late tonight said it all: After Criticism Of Dems For Pushing Timeline,
Bush Admin. Now Has Ã¢â‚¬ËœAdjustable' Troop Withdrawal Schedule.
Ã¢â‚¬ËœAdjustable' Troop Withdrawal Schedule. Classic stuff, really,
which everyone except Kerry and Feingold were too scared to wake up to and smell
the realities of war.
offers details, which include amnesty for insurgents who attacked American troops. How 'bout a little pepto with your Sunday paper, darling.
It will be interesting to hear what Russ
