Down, but out?

The release of the NIE and its front page coverage certainly looks to be a shot across the bows of the USS Cheney. Unaccustomed to be forced into a defensive posture, the neo-cons dragged (kicking and screaming, no doubt) Feckless Leader out into the public to give a press conference. The net result was that FL managed to make an even bigger ass of himself than usual, a difficult feat, and the war on Iran seems to have lost some of its luster. Even the Iraq card has been minimized in the last weeks.

But one thing we know about Cheney and the neo-cons, they are persistent. Expect a counter-attack in the upcoming days.
