General Petraeus Presents

August 15th, 2007at 10:02pm Posted by Eli

This surprises… no-one:

Despite Bush’s repeated statements that the report will reflect evaluations by Petraeus and Ryan Crocker, the U.S. ambassador to Iraq, administration officials said it would actually be written by the White House, with inputs from officials throughout the government.

And though Petraeus and Crocker will present their recommendations on Capitol Hill, legislation passed by Congress leaves it to the president to decide how to interpret the report’s data.

See, the “Petraeus Report” is like those movies that are “presented” by some big-name director who actually had nothing to do with them. They’re packaged as “Wes Craven presents,” or “Quentin Tarantino presents,” but the director is usually some mediocre hack no-one’s ever heard of.

Stay tuned for the next big Iraq report early next year – I hear it’ll be written by General Alan Smithee.
