White House review of White House Iraq policy deems said policy to be successful; White House decides, based on the report, to continue with its same policy.

There’s something, I dunno, degrading about this exercise. Bush is the Bush. The Republicans plus Joe Lieberman constitute a majority of the Senate. As few as 34 Senators can uphold Bush’s vetos. Bush has no practical need to do anything other than keep playing the role of petulant boy-king. Why the pretense? I have in my inbox a “”Benchmark Report Fact Check” email that is, of course, devastating. If it included a link, I would link to it. But I won’t attempt a summary. It says the report is BS. But, of course, you already knew that. Jim Fallows watched the press conference.

UPDATE: And here’s your link.
