The Top of the News

It has not been a good news cycle for the Bush team. For one day, the focus shifted off of Iraq only to move to a damaging 9-11 report. The placement of these stories at Wapo does make one consider how many more headlines we’ve seen about Iraq (as opposed to general 9-11 security related issues) over the past couple of years.

That media focus is likely an accurate mirror version of the administration’s focus making the question of whether or not Iraq is actually the central factor in the war on terror one of the most compelling and important questions of this era.

Concentration is important!
