Makin' progress

We are so kicking ass! As Bill "Always Wrong" Kristol continues his feverish masturbatory fantasies of the glorious surge, the Bush misadministration is "sending strong signals that U.S. troop reductions in Iraq will slow or stop altogether this summer, a move that would jeopardize hopes of relieving strain on the Army and Marine Corps and revive debate over an open-ended U.S. commitment in Iraq."

The indications of a likely slowdown reflect concern by U.S. commanders that the improvement in security in Iraq since June — to a degree few had predicted when [the Mission Accomplished Commander Guy] ordered five more Army brigades to Iraq a year ago — is tenuous and could be reversed if the extra troops come out too soon.
In another astonishing sign of normalcy, an Iraqi television cameraman and his driver were killed in a roadside bombing north of Baghdad Wednesday.
