Paul Bremer predicts another upsurge in attacks against Americans troops. General Clark reams Lieutenant AWOL on his lack of personal integrity. "President Bush will be unable to win allied support to send more troops into postwar Iraq because European leaders have lost faith in him, Democratic presidential candidate Wesley Clark said Thursday. 'I hate to say this, but a lot of it is personal. It is directed against Bush. They won't join with George Bush. They don't trust him,' Clark said during an interview with The Telegraph's editorial board." Commentary Opinion: Soldier sounds off about Operation Jive Turkey. "Why is it that the President did not care enough to visit the troops on the previous two Thanksgiving holidays, when he had high approval ratings amongst both the troops and the public? Instead, he stayed at the ranch in Crawford. Sort of like he stayed in Texas and Alabama, where he was AWOL for a year from the Air National Guard, during the Vietnam War, while others such as Sen. John Kerry, Sen. John McCain, former Sen. Max Cleland, and yes, even Al Gore served in combat." Editorial: Bush's media manipulation hides his Iraq failure from the American people. "How are we supposed to believe that this conflict is really about democracy for the Iraqi people, or eradicating terrorism, when White House spin doctors play such a prominent role in this particular theater?"
