NBC News: Iraq War Is Now A Civil War
NBC News is now calling the Iraq War a civil war.
Now that Bush is politically impotent, I think we can expect the U.S. media to find the courage to speak truth to the disempowered.
On the Today Show this morning, host Matt Lauer noted a change in policy at NBC News:
"For months now the White House has rejected claims that the situation in Iraq has deteriorated into a civil war. And, for the most part, news organizations like NBC have hesitated to characterize it as such. But after careful consideration, NBC News has decided a change in terminology is warranted -- that the situation in Iraq with armed militarized factions fighting for their own political agendas -- can now be characterized as a civil war."
Meanwhile, Britain, Italy and Poland prepare to cut and run.
