Report offers grim view of American leaders

I know that's not what it says, but that's certainly what it says. Oh, fear not, mes amis, the America-hating moonbats don't escape unscathed either from the Just and Godly Wrath of The Mighty NIE.

But the report also implicitly criticizes proposals offered by Democrats, including several presidential candidates, who have called for a withdrawal of American combat troops from Iraq by next year and for a major shift in the American approach, from manpower-intensive counterinsurgency operations to lower-profile efforts aimed at supporting Iraqi troops and carrying out quick-strike counterterrorism raids.
You bastards. You can't give it six more months, can you. It'll work this time. No, really. It will. I swear! Why are you looking at me that way?
Such a shift, the report says, would "erode security gains achieved thus far" and could return Iraq to a downward spiral of sectarian violence.
See, we have to stay the course lest we be responsible for even more death.
While the current strategy in Iraq has produced "measurable but uneven improvements" in security, it says,
One step forward, one step back. Cha, cha, cha.
the approach has done little to bridge sectarian divides in Iraq.
At least that spiral of sectarian violence has stopped rearing its multiple heads and no longer leaves a trail of refugees and bloody corpses in its wake. The surge worked.
The report also says that pulling American troops out of Iraq would most likely make things far worse.
That's right. Stay. The. Course. With just enough - horrors! - nuance to allow nitpicking, but disallow outright rejection by The Very Serious, it's almost like this report had been pre-approved by the Bush administration. It's a good thing they haven't politicized virtually every nook and crannie of the government.

And let's not even talk about this traitorous behavior
, nor the fact that it doesn't exactly mesh with the NIE. I know you were fired, Pete, but this rancor is uncalled for, and after all we've done for you, too. Why can't you be more like this lackey?

However, the article ended on a strange note of unintended veracity.
Adm. Michael G. Mullen, the incoming chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, told members of Congress last month that without political progress in Iraq, "no amount of troops in no amount of time will make much of a difference."
If you say that you are mine
I'll be here 'til the end of time
So you got to let know
Should I stay or should I go?

Whether you support the troops or hate them, the answer is quite obvious.
