Tony “The Poodle” Blair is pulling British troops out of Iraq and Stephan Hadley is having the dickens of a time spinning it as “good news”.
President Bush’s top foreign policy aide proclaimed it “basically a good-news story.”
What national security adviser Stephen J. Hadley meant was that the British believe they have made enough progress in southern Iraq to turn over more of their sector to Iraqi forces.
Got that? It has NOTHING TO DO with the British Govt wanting to be long gone when Bush attacks Iran.
NOTHING AT ALL.
I hope we’re all clear about that now.
(Oh, yes – Denmark is leaving, too but THAT’S JUST A CO-INCIDENCE.)
