Good News From Iraq!?

As Vid noted below, Bush, who doesn't read newspapers because "He prefers instead to learn what's going on from people who know what they're talking about", now has alternative sources of folks 'who know what they're talking about.'

And the folks that Bush thinks know what they're talking about!?

Well, that would be bloggers ... from Iraq ... who just happened to be former Offal Office guests ... and who just happen to write editorials for the Wall Street Journal.

And the quotes Bush used about how gooood things are in Iraq?

Yeah, they were written February 18th, 11 days after the surge escalation started ... and they were quotes from a state run newspaper ... quoting an Iraqi Defense Minister spokesman.

I wonder what spin they put on recent events, like these.

Well golly, I just looked at their recent posts and they mentioned nothing about how many of their fellow citizens died in the last week, but they did post about how their house was searched by Americans troops, what an excellent experience it was, and they took this photo:

What's striking to me is that even Iraqi bloggers who insist that things are getting better all the time won't let their faces be shown.

Yeah, Good News From Iraq.

How bad is it when Dubya is forced to acknowledge some suck-up bloggers to *cough* reinforce his claim that things are going so well in Iraq?

If they show their faces, the terrorists that have snuck into the country to support the insurrection will undoubtedly make them a prime target, so they're in fear for their lives, of course.
If you can't see that, you don't think things through very logically. BDS is a sad thing to have.
