Letter from Baghdad.

Several days ago, a Wall Street Journal (damned liberal media) correspondent e-mailed friends from Iraq. In short, it’s a hell. The Republican spin about the joys of freedom and how things are gradually getting better? Utter lies. Her letter was leaked, and it paints a very bleak portrait of “the situation.”

One could argue that Iraq is already lost beyond salvation. For those of us on the ground it’s hard to imagine what if any thing could salvage it from its violent downward spiral.

The genie of terrorism, chaos and mayhem has been unleashed onto this country as a result of American mistakes and it can’t be put back into a bottle.

President Bush has lost his war. Tonight, in the first of the three “debates” with John Kerry, he will once again declare “mission accomplished,” in Orwellian opposition to the truth. Bush may just win his war on facts (6.2MB QT).
