China calls for immediate end to war. Yawn.
Shortly before 4 p.m. yesterday, Director of Central Intelligence George J. Tenet offered President Bush the prospect — improbable to the point of fantasy, yet suddenly at hand — that the war against Iraq might be transformed with its opening shots. The CIA, Tenet said, believed it had a fix on President Saddam Hussein.

There is still hope that we got Saddam. The “live” Saddam speech broadcast shortly after the attack is suspected of being taped and some Saddam watchers even doubt that the man in the broadcast is the real Saddam.
I admit it. I haven’t surfed the cable news stations since Fox worked Laurie Dhue into the rotation. CNN could have live video of Gen. Tommy Franks personally bitch slapping Saddam and I wouldn’t flip.
The media keeps trying to make something out of the fact that the U.S. movement against “targets of opportunity” earlier was not a joint operation with the UK forces. This fact means absolutely nothing but they appear to be looking for anything to generate a rift in the coalition forces.
