Victory Imminent or Is it Just More Spin from the W?

Correct me if I am wrong, but didn't W declare victory and "Mission Accomplished" long ago on an aircraft carrier that he "flew"on to at great taxpayer expense?
"I want to defeat the terrorists. And I want our troops to come home, but I don't want them to come home without having achieved victory. "PRESIDENT BUSH

I'm just asking - were the terrorists in Iraq before or after we got there? Certainly, he is comforable with GIs coming home in square pine boxes and with limbs dismembered.

Oh, incidentially, here's a good question posed in Scotty's press briefing today:
Q Secondly, about the speech, couldn't people fairly ask why it is that the President hasn't had a strategy for victory before November 2005?

Dear E4E,

Becuase they don't readily idenitify those asking the questions, I am not sure who posed it. However, if it has an instagatory twist, you can bet it was probably Helen or Gregory. And, I do love Helen Thomas.
