Seems that Bush saw an opportunity to take a chance at striking key Iraqi leadership and called an audible. What will this mean? No one really knows right now. It’s is somewhat reassuring that Bush has said he wants to be as surgical as possible in the strikes, to keep away from needless loss of life (how’s that for an oxymoron.) But the audible will means changes for what US leaders had initially planned to do.
After the initial news of strikes and Bush’s speech, I felt the best channel to watch for background info on the events was actually MTV and their MTV-News stories/opinion pieces.
