Sleeping with the Enemy

So, I am supposed to be the traitor to America? It's us 'libruls' who are selling out the troops?

Bush met with Sunni tribal sheikhs who have given his administration hopes of a turnaround in the deadly Sunni insurgency unleashed after the toppling of Saddam Hussein in April 2003.

"The president has been inspired and pleased with what he has seen in Anbar," said Morrell, who said the session with the tribal leaders was also an opportunity to encourage them to reconcile with the Iraqi government.

Bush is meeting and shaking hands and having a fucking cup of mint tea with the same guys who were killing our guys, like, last fucking week?

Look I am just as pragmatic a soldier as the next joe. I know you got to make some strange bedfellows in a insurgency. But does the President of the United States need to have tea with people whose hands are still sticky from the blood of my brothers?
