Waiting On Bush

In about 20 minutes President Bush is going to give a big address on Iraq at the U.S. Naval Academy. Here's a copy of the 38-page document sent out by the White House earlier this morning titled "National Strategy For Victory in Iraq."

I glanced at the Executive Summary (pages 4-5) and frankly I don't see anything that we don't already know or haven't already heard.  The first page of the document itself says it "articulates the broad strategy the President set forth in 2003 and provides an update on our progress as well as the challenges remaining."

That doesn't mean this isn't an important address or that it won't be helpful to Bush in trying to turn around public opinion on the war.  I'll be back after the speech with more thoughts.
