Did Fox Mix Up Washington Post Report On Strategy For Iraq?

Reported by Donna - November 20, 2006 -

Today on Fox On Line with Bill Hemmer they reported on a segment about possible strategies for Iraq. They said first that the Washington Post had said to 'Go Big, Go Hard or Go Home.'

A short time later they said that the Washington Post said, 'Go Big, Go Long or Go Home.'

Comment: While these sound like football metaphors, it does sound like typical 'big talk' by the Bush Administration. I'm just curious, though, what's the difference between going 'hard' or going 'long?'

I have a feeling the second one was the correct one, meaning going big (adding more troops) or going long (fewer troops but for a longer time) or going home (withdrawal of the troops, but would that be immediate or gradual?)
