Join The Dots

All British and United States troops serving in Iraq will be withdrawn within a year in an effort to bring peace and stability to the country.
This news report on a withdrawal of forces within a set timeframe is completely false...
There's a tone of gleeful relish in the way they talk about dragging reporters before grand juries, their appetite for withholding information, and the hints that reporters who look too hard into the public's business risk being branded traitors. I don't know how far action will follow rhetoric, but some days it sounds like the administration is declaring war at home on the values it professes to be promoting abroad.
