This week’s The New Yorker (not apparently on line yet) has a Comment, Name Calling by George Packer, that pretty much telegraphs what the GOP package is that they will be use to sell Americans just in time for the 2006 elections.
“The President’s chief of staff, Andrew Card, once said of the war planning for Iraq, ‘You don’t introduce new products in August,’ but the rebranding of the war formerly known as the G.W.O.T has all the earmarks of a full-blown summer marketing campaign. What’s going on here?”
No surprises… Packer speculates… the pull out of American Troops from Iraq.
“It seems likely that the Administration will begin to withdraw American forces from Iraq early next year, well ahead of the midterm elections in November — regardless of the realities.”
