War Improves — US Now Fights Iraqi Police

Just a day after President Bush informed Congress of progress in Iraq, an American force which arrested an Iraqi police lieutenant who was aiding Shiite terrorists, found themselves under fire from Iraqi police. The American troops even had to call in planes to bomb the police area in order to finally overcome opposition elements.

Let me get this clear, George, things are getting better. Yes, they are, but it depends on which side is improving their situation. Now, American troops are fighting Iraqi police. Is this the president’s interpretation of improvement?
