Gee, I wonder what it will say?

The WHITE HOUSE WILL WRITE PETRAUS' SEPTEMBER REPORT - Think Progress
President Bush will have it drafted before the General even gets back from Iraq so it can be fair and balanced. And people wonder why I am so cynical.

LA TIMES: Despite Bush’s repeated statements that the report will reflect evaluations by Petraeus and Ryan Crocker, the U.S. ambassador to Iraq, administration officials said it would actually be written by the White House, with inputs from officials throughout the government.

And though Petraeus and Crocker will present their recommendations on Capitol Hill, legislation passed by Congress leaves it to the president to decide how to interpret the report’s data.
