Dead Or Not Dead?

Examiner (07.06.07), via Balloon Juice:
"The U.S. command in Baghdad this week ballyhooed the killing of a key al Qaeda leader but later admitted that the military had declared him dead a year ago.

A military spokesman acknowledged the mistake after it was called to his attention by The Examiner. He said public affairs officers will be more careful in announcing significant kills."

U.S. eager and it shows in Iraq

The guy doing the ballyhooing was one Brigadier General Kevin J. (Loyal Bushie) Bergner, the new spokesman for MNF-Iraq.

Kevin's been trying very hard to sell the Iran in Iraq story of late, getting Old Joe (Bomb Iran) Lieberman all lathered up in the process.

Keep on eye Kevin. Real up-and-comer, that one.
