Today's Cartoon: George W. Bush Declassifies Portions of Leaked Intelligence Report on Iraq

To me it seems rather indicative of the disconnect that exists between the Bush Administration and well... "reality", when the President of the United States actually needs a "secret" intelligence report to tell him what basically the rest of the world has already known for quite a while now... that the war in Iraq may in fact be one of the worst mistakes ever made, by any country, in the history of the civilization.

The other one perhaps being the day that Australia decided to introduce rabbits into its ecosystem, in which the results were alarmingly similar ;)

President Bush has alleged that the "leaking" of information from the National Intelligence Estimate on Iraq to the media, ahead of November's mid-term elections, was done so purely for "political purposes". In other words, the confirmation of a belief that most everyone (who reads the news) has already had since even before the President received this report (back in April), may in turn give the American people a more accurate understanding of the situation in Iraq going into the Congressional Elections; instead of after, when the release of such a grim assessment would have been far less damaging to the administration, especially if the Republicans were successfully able to maintain control of the House and Senate.
