"Reports of My Death Have Been Greatly Exaggerated"
In a possible foreshadowing of September's expected "good news" report on the Iraq surge from the Bush Assministration's hand picked General, David Petraeus, the death of a key al Qaeda commander has been reported by our command in Baghdad - - twice. Once a year ago, and again this past Monday. When questioned by a reporter, Brigadier General Kevin Bergner, who recently came to Baghdad via the White House and thus is no stranger to spin, later admitted that al Qaeda leader Kamal Jalil Uthman had not been killed last year as earlier reported. Maybe they got him this time. And maybe Gen. Bergner will be announcing the total defeat of al Qaeda in Iraq come September.
