Don’t let the enemy know your plans?


George Bush vetoed a war spending bill that had withdrawal time-frames.  He said that letting your enemy know your plans would embolden them (talking point memo) if they know our plans – (FLIP)

He then had a press conference the other day where a reporter asked if he thought the recent “surge” was a success.  He said he would wait to comment on that until September when the report of progress would be released from those on the ground in Iraq.  He was then asked by a reporter if by stating “out loud” that the report would be released in September, that the insurgents would make sure that August would be a terrible month in terms of the number of military and civilian deaths.  Mr. Bush actually said that August could be a “bloody” month.  He stopped himself half way through the word “bloody” and said “bad”. (FLOP).
