Bush Gives Troops Holiday Pep Talk 11:09 a.m. ET
FORT BRAGG, N.C. (AP) -- President Bush, celebrating his fourth July Fourth as a wartime leader, said Tuesday U.S. troops will overcome persistent violence in Iraq and a rekindled insurgency in Afghanistan because the enemy is vulnerable. (The president notified the base commmander only minutes before Air Force One touched down to ensure security for the Bush entourage.)

A Day For a Thrilling Show:

Today's Independence Day speech by President Bush at Fort Bragg was given to troops he has condemned to death or wounding, with Bush threatening the soldiers with, "I will make you this promise, I'm not going to allow the sacrifice of 2,527 troops who have died in Iraq to be in vain." Bush touted the killing of Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, saying, "At this moment of vulnerability for the enemy, we will continue to strike their network. We will disrupt their operations, and we will bring their leaders to justice."

Of course, reality, as ever, is just a motherfucker for the President, especially since the U.S. Ambassador to Iraq just told the BBC that Zarqawi's death hasn't done a whole fuck of a lot to make Iraq safer: "[I]n terms of the level of violence, it has not had any impact at this point."

Anything for a fake news clip.

I think it's staged and fake that he couldn't announce the visit ahead of time. On the one hand one might think it isn't even safe for him here, but my guess is it was calculated to claim the secrecy for the Iraq visit was as much routine as an indicator the place is a mess.

Expect a follow up "talking point" on a Fox broadcast any time now proclaiming secrecy is routine.
