Bush on Iraq

There has been much progress made in Iraq. Incremental progress but progress none the less. With this new new leadership, we have reached a turning point. A turning point unlike any of the previous turning points. For this turning point marks the beginning of our incremental shift toward a kinda, sorta, maybe phased withdrawal of some of our forces.

Now any kinda, sorta, maybe decision to bring some of our troops home has nothing whatsoever to do with the upcoming mid-term elections. Far from it. As I have said many times before, decisions about troop numbers are always decided by commanders on the ground. And the commanders have assured me that they are making preparations for accepting nothing less than total victory in the struggle for Iraq.

Thank you, and enjoy your meals.

Update: You know, I don't know who gave you the impression that we would be announcing troop withdrawals from Iraq. But I can assure you that I will not rest until I have found the person responsible for leaking this sensitive information. We must wait for Iraq to become successful, self-governing, peaceful and stable. Or until October, whichever comes first.

Put another way, "Our commanders will be forced to do more with less."
