Born at the Crest of the Empire

(WaPo) At a press conference, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs Mullen decries a lack of troops available and needed for Afghanistan. (I wonder why that could be....)

(ChicagoTribune) Same press conference, Mullen seems to warn against an attack on Iran, "Opening up a third front right now would be extremely stressful on us...."

Long NYTimes story, but the bottom line is that the long term SofA between the US and Iraq appears dead in favor of a much less defined and formalized temporary deal, between 2 to 10 years.

The WaPo attends the same press conference and comes away reporting "progress" on the current negotiation.

And, I don't know if I believe it, but (ABC) "President Bush will soon decide whether to close Guantanamo Bay as a prison for al-Qaeda suspects, sources tell ABC News."
