- Columbia Journalism Review reminds us of what pundits said to keep America in line with the President's Agenda regarding the mission here. It will crack you up... or bring you to tears.
- Here are some quotes from the speech.
- Also, here is what the White House said about the banner (report by AP),
"President Bush is well aware that the banner should have been much more specific and said `mission accomplished' for these sailors who are on this ship on their mission," White House press secretary Dana Perino said Wednesday. "And we have certainly paid a price for not being more specific on that banner. And I recognize that the media is going to play this up again tomorrow, as they do every single year."
She said what is important now is "how the president would describe the fight today. It's been a very tough month in Iraq, but we are taking the fight to the enemy."
