Bush Prepares "Brand New Strategy For Victory", Changing, Again, Reasons For Iraq War

New Downing Street Memos, Iraqi Historians Force White House To Give "Something That Will Stick"

The White House this morning, in a hastily called press conference, announced that they will soon release a "Brand New Strategy For Victory In Iraq", coming in the wake of news reports that a new, Downing Street memo shows President Bush and British Prime Minister discussing the invasion of Iraq earlier that previously stated.

In the report, appearing in the British newspaper, The Guardian, as well as on a British television station Channel 4 News, Prime Minister Blair is alleged to have told Bush in January 2003 he was "solidly behind" U.S. plans for military action, despite the continuing negotiations going in in the United Nations, for a second resolution calling for Saddam Hussein to disarm.

The new memo is said to be a record of a meeting between Bush and Blair, at the White House, on 31 January, 2003.

White House Press Secretary refused comment on the report, and, ignoring follow-up questions, defended President Bush's "Terrorist Surveillance Program".

"As the President said on Tuesday, during his State of the Union Address," said McClellan, "Hindsight alone is not wisdom. And second-guessing is not a strategy. We face real threats and the President is taking courageous actions to protect the citizens of the United States so that we are not hit again."

McClellan refused to say what the "Brand New Strategy For Victory In Iraq" would be, but that would be "comprehensive and detailed". McClellan did say that the new plan would not "carry any second-guessing of the first Strategy For Victory In Iraq".

"Our plans have been very solid," said McClellan, "and even the Iraqi media has indicated such."

McClellan refused to clarify his remark, if it was independent Iraqi media that was endorsing President Bush's plans, or if it was the Lincoln Group and Department of Defense-generated media that was doing so.

McClellan did confirm that the "Brand New Strategy For Victory In Iraq" would be incorporated into the Bushapalooza Tour, "right away".

The Garlic has also learned through sources, that the new Iraqi Parliament has been pressuring the Bush White House "for the real reason" of invading and occupying the country, as they want to get there official historians busy and start writing the recent events for posterity.

""We need answers," says one Iraqi politician, who spoke on background only. "They give us many answers on why and then keep changing them. We ask many times to give us something that we can stick to."

The new memo claims that President Bush told Prime Minister Blair that "the diplomatic strategy had to be arranged around the military planning."

So far, the Bush Administration has suggested the reasons to invade Iraq were that the Iraqi's were behind the September 11th attacks, the claims of Weapons of Mass Destruction, further claims that Saddam was planning on building nuclear weapons and ultimately settled on that Iraq is the center of terrorism for the world.

President Bush, in the January meeting with Blair, was searching for a reason to go to war with Saddam, confiding to Mr. Blair that he "hoped" an Iraqi defector would step forward and could "give a public presentation about Saddam's weapons of mass destruction". President Bush also suggested to Blair that there was a possibility Saddam would be assassinated.

Perhaps one of President Bush's more, far-reaching plans to goad Saddam into was his consideration of "flying U2 reconnaissance aircraft with fighter cover over Iraq, painted in U.N. colors."

Minority Senate Leader, Senator Harry Reid (D-NV) said that "the pieces of the puzzle are coming together".

"We can see now, why the President pushed so hard to place John Bolton in the United Nations. He likely wanted him there to start a 'Paint-For-War' scheme. Who better than Bolton to brow-beat some U.N. maintenance man to give him the barrels of paint."

McClellan, responding to a question, if the 'Brand New Strategy For Victory In Iraq' was meant to give the President a a bounce in the poll, which currently show that 52-percent of Americans believe the Bush administration intentionally misled the public in making its case for war in Iraq, said;

"The President doesn't goven by polls. There is a difference between responsible criticism that aims for success and defeatism that refuses to acknowledge anything but failure."

McClellan refused to comment on rumors that, as the Administration rolls out it's "Brand New Strategy For Victory In Iraq", staff members are already working on "An Even Newer - And Better - Strategy For Victory In Iraq".

British Prime Minister Tony Blair said today that "he's ready to rock" with President Bush's "Brand New Strategy For Victory In Iraq"
