Meanwhile, the Iraqi parliament is apparently taking August off . . .
July 16, 2007

from Dan Froomkin: http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/blog/2007/...


Feeling the Heat

From Friday's briefing with press secretary Tony Snow: http://www.whitehouse.gov/news/releases/2007/07/2007071...


"Q Is the Iraqi government and the Iraqi parliament taking the month of August off?

"MR. SNOW: Probably, yes. Just not --

"Q They're taking the entire month of August off, before the September deadline?

"MR. SNOW: It looks like they may, yes. Just like the U.S. Congress is.

"Q Have you tried to talk them out of that?

"MR. SNOW: You know, it's 130 degrees in Baghdad in August, I'll pass on your recommendation.

"Q Well, Tony, Tony, I'm sorry, that's -- you know -- I mean, there are a lot of things that happen by September and it's 130 degrees for the U.S. military also on the ground --

"MR. SNOW: You know, that's a good point. And it's 130 degrees for the Iraqi military. The Iraqis, you know, I'll let them -- my understanding is that at this juncture they're going to take August off, but, you know, they may change their minds."

bu$h takes August off and believes in violence.
