WELL THAT'S CERTAINLY AN APPROPRIATE WORD FOR IT
So what do they suggest? Well, according to the article from AP:
"There is no magic formula," the Iraq Study Group's report said, according to the official who spoke on condition of anonymity because the study had not yet been released.Not yet released? What is this, a goddamn movie? Are they waiting to see what the preview audiences say? Maybe have to trim a few minutes from the final scene?
Meanwhile, according to the article, "the report was obtained by The Associated Press." So A.P. has it, yet no one can tell the American people what it says? And my question is "why not?" This report is the worst-kept secret since Kruschev's "Secret Speech," yet the charade, this leaking and hinting of snippets of information continues. As if the report contains some classified strategy directives.
Please. Members of the mainstream press get exclusive access to the White House, ask softball questions, and then claim they can't share with us the rare doses of actual information they learn. They're complicit in this disaster.
When we look back from the perch of history to understand how this nightmare happened, we'll need to remember to include the press along with Congress and, of course, the Administration.
