a real straight shooter:
recently arrived on President Bush's desk:
The [first National Intelligence Estimate on Iraq since 2002] outlines three possibilities for Iraq through the end of 2005, with the worst case being developments that could lead to civil war, the officials said. The most favorable outcome described is an Iraq whose stability would remain tenuous in political, economic, and security terms.
more recently delivered from Bush's mouth:
Despite ongoing violence in Iraq, that country now has a strong prime minister, a national council, and national elections are scheduled in January. The world is changing for the better.
