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.

Political Wire:

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.
