The Hedge Begins

Rumsfeld just now, at a Pentagon press briefing, talking about the mandated deadline for Iraqi sovereignty, "We are headed towards June 30... or thereabouts."


Then he started banging on the desk like a chimp and saying how terrible Saddam and his rape rooms were (because, as I've said before, our rape rooms at Abu Ghraib are much cleaner), and how we should expect uncertainty from people on the ground about the June 30 date because it's so tough to go from a brutal dictatorship to a democracy (especially when it's an unwanted occupation propped up as a puppet democracy).

That June 30 press conference should be fun, if they're already backing off the date.
