Petraeus Report update

some more information on the report:

a majority of americans seems to have some doubts about the report:

But according to a CNN/Opinion Research Corp. poll released Thursday, 53 percent of people polled said they suspect that the military assessment of the situation will try to make it sound better than it actually is. Forty-three percent said they do trust the report.
Crocker wants to put a lot of Iran into the Iraq report:

U.S. envoy says Iraq report will sound warning on Iran

pretty bizarre, while we re still counting deads in the terrible village bombing in the north. 200? 250? 400? or even over 500?
if Iran was a major concern, the "surge" should have moved troops onto the iranian border. that did not happen. instead, the troops moved into mainly sunni territory. sometimes i wished, the US ambassador to the country, could tell sunnis and shiis apart..

meanwhile warnings are leaked about a "mixed picture" in the report. bizarre.
