Bush: 'They're Confronting The Terrorists And They're Are Taking Their Country Back'
http://www.breitbart.com/article.php?id=D8SLMHEO2&show_article=1

 
  FORT JACKSON, S.C. (AP) - President Bush said Friday that U.S. military deaths have fallen to their lowest levels in 19 months and the Iraqi people are slowly "taking back their country" amid the American troop build up there.
Speaking at a graduation ceremony for new soldiers at Fort Jackson, Bush said that parts of Iraq continue to be violent and that terrorists remain determined.

"But what they have learned about the United States of America is that we are more determined," Bush said. "We are more determined to protect ourselves and to help people realize the blessings of freedom."

Bush said corruption remains a problem and unemployment remains high, but that Iraqi forces have now assumed responsibility in security in eight of Iraq's 18 provinces.

"With our help, the Iraqi people are going on the offense against the enemy. They're confronting the terrorists and they're are taking their country back."

Before he spoke, he took a tour of the school's "fit-to-win course," which requires recruits to negotiate up to twenty obstacles. He addressed about 180 soldiers at the site deep in the piney woods, telling them he was proud of their efforts and that they would help secure a peaceful future for America.

Do I need to point out the irony of using an Associated Press wire story to whine about what meanies the 'MSM' are to Dubya?

Glad I wasn't the only one to catch that.


And for once I agree with Riley.
Lesseee....WMD's in Iraq? Oops, no, faulty intelligence.
Al Queda in Iraq.....ooops....not until after the invasion.
We're winning the war in Iraq! Um, yeah...sure....
