A Lot Of News

U.S. soldiers killed in Iraq hits 2,000.

Rep. Jim McGovern of Massachusetts announced today he plans to introduce a bill to cut off funding for the war.

Steve Clemons of the Washington Note claims Fitzgerald will issue 1-5 sealed indictments tomorrow.

It's beginning to look a lot like Fitzmas
Ev'rywhere you go
Libby gets five to ten, maybe Abrams in jail again
With David Corn and Raimondo all aglow

Sorry, I just can't support the cutting of funding. That will result in more casualties. While there, our troops deserve complete support including financial. Just bring them home.

Ah... what a Merry Fitzmas it could be.

If the indictment Fitz,
You won't acquitz
Whenever Scooter Libby shitz
Prison guards watch his naughty bitz
And maybe Dickie Cheney quitz
So Georgie's second term's the pitz

The press release isn't online for some reason, but here's a quote from it which should assuage your concerns:

The bill will allow funds to be used for the safe and orderly withdrawal of our troops; for transitional security provided by other countries - including international organizations like NATO and the United Nations; and for continued support for Iraqi security forces and international forces in Iraq - as well as funding for reconstruction efforts.
