#1 Well at least Obama knows about the press.

Bush was TERRIBLE about getting info out.

#2 You'll notice that this is a Fox News report. I'll bet Fox is trying to help our Military after the bad collateral damage news of late.(Not helped by Obama's pathetic statements, thank you)

Except for Fox the rest of the MSM wants to publish old pics of Abu Ghraib.

#3 I am outraged by all the time wasted in getting permission to open fire. Do you realize how much aviation fuel is wasted?

Think of the implications for global warming! I'm calling Al Gore!

#4 But wait! There's more....

This morning, from a cave somewhere in Pakistan, Taliban Minister of Migration Mohammed Omar, warned the United States that if military actions against Iraq continue, Taliban authorities intend to cut off America 's supply of convenience store managers and possibly Motel 6 managers.

And if this action does not yield sufficient results, cab drivers will be next, followed by Dell And AOL customer service reps.

Finally, if all else fails, they have threatened to send us no more candidates for President of the United States!

#5 We're fighting a war. Are our front line supposed to hold off on hotsilities if communiciations are disrupted? Ridiculous. No wonder after 7 years plus we're still a long way from finishing the job.

#6 This is nothing new. GW-1, we waited nearly 30 minutes for clearance to engage an Iraqi surface craft. By the time it was given, the craft had escaped into Iranian waters.
