The DNC and U.S.-Iraq withdrawal agreement timing: an amazing coincidence!
So on August 21, four days before the start of the Democratic National Convention, Secretary of State Condoleeza Rice says the United States and Iraq have agreed that timetables should be set for U.S. troop withdrawl from the wartorn country, and major news agencies are reporting the target as 2011 -- a little later than either Barack Obama or the Iraqi government would prefer, but in the ballpark. Well, I, for one, don't believe that cynical political calculations or an interest in taking the sting out of an issue sure to be enormous part of the Denver bash played any part in the timing of this announcement. Oh yeah: I also think professional wrestling is totally on the level. Glad to have finally gotten that off my chest. -- Michael Roberts
