MSNBC Headline: Bush To Admit Iraq Mistakes

"President Bush will tell the nation Wednesday night he will send more than 21,500 additional American forces to Iraq, acknowledging that it was a mistake earlier not to have more American and Iraqi troops fighting the war."
Another example of Bush fixing a mistake, by making another.

The article continues by showing us Bush's other line of defense, blame the Iraqis:

"Seeking support for a retooled strategy to win support for the unpopular war, the president will acknowledge that the rules of engagement were flawed because certain neighborhoods in Baghdad were put off limits by the government of Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki, White House counselor Dan Bartlett said. 'Military operations sometimes were handcuffed by political interference by the Iraqi leadership,' he said.

Bartlett also said the Iraqis had failed to deliver on earlier pledges to commit more of their troops. 'They (the Iraqis) are going to have more boots on the ground,' he said. 'They’re going to be the ones doing the knocking on the door.'"
So to sum up, Bush's plan tonight is to put another 21,500 of our troops into harms way, blame the Iraqis for all of our problems (rather than his own incompetent leadership), and basically admit to America and the rest of the world that we don't care what the Iraqi puppet regime has to say because, "Whateva, I do what I want!"

Ladies and Gentlemen, our President of the United States:
