UPDATE: Brendan Loy asks a question I’ve been hearing more and more: “It’s the most convincing account I’ve read of the success we’re (finally) having in Iraq, and frankly, I don’t understand why the hell it’s being left to individual conservative bloggers to write accounts like this. Where is the media? Where is the Bush Administration’s vaunted propaganda machine?”

Katie Couric has been on the job! The Bush propaganda machine, however, seems more vaunted than real.
