The media, Democrats, and, yes, even the Bush administration keep talking about "September" and, sometimes, Sept. 15, as the end date for success...Jessica apparently was missing in action when:
And the conventional wisdom has become "September's it." Even Bush seems to have conceded this point. He doesn't say we're withdrawing in September, but his rhetoric seems to concede that September is this big make-or-break point. "Just give it to September," the Republicans seem to be saying more and more.
The Army's top general and US ambassaqdor announced that they would do a full assessment in September.
Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell said September would be the time to determine how long US forces should stay.
Congress passed a provision by Republican Sen. John Warner requiring reports to Congress on progress in Iraq on July 15 and Sept. 15
It's an Emily Littela moment for Jessica.
