Did we mention Bush is giving a speech on Iraq tonight?

Reported by Chrish - June 28, 2005

The first ten minutes of Special Report with Brit Hume today 6/28/05 were pretty much devoted to hyping the speech to be delivered later on tonight. We were even treated to a preview of things to come. Campaign Carl, Bush's buddy, is in North Carolina and read part of the speech.

This same clip was reported on John Gibson's Big Story in the hour immediately previous. The amplification and drilling are starting early - the dittoheads (ditzes, for short) will be parroting the good news word for word by sunrise.

"The work in Iraq is difficult and dangerous. Like most Americans I see the images of violence and bloodshed. Every picture is horrifying and the suffering is real. Amid all this violence, I know Americans ask the queston: Is the sacrifice worth it? It is worth it, and it is vital to the future security of our country. The terrorists can kill the innocent - but they cannot stop the advance of freedom. The only way our enemies can succeed is if we forget the lessons of September 11, if we abandon the Iraqi people to men like Zarqawi, and if we yield the future of the Middle East to men like Bin Laden."

Salient talking points: War is hard work but it's worth it. The war in Iraq is making us more secure.

Comment: A New York Times report today reads in part:
The assessment said the central role played by Iraq meant that, for now, most potential terrorists were likely to focus their energies on attacking American forces there, rather than carrying out attacks elsewhere, the officials said. But the officials said Saudi Arabia, Jordan and other countries would soon have to contend with militants who leave Iraq equipped with considerable experience and training.
