About the great successs in McCain's War...

The British Guardian Online is reporting on a big Ooops! that occurred when apparently a British governmental official left classified reports on Al Qa'ida and the state of the Iraqi Army on a train: Top secret al-Qaida files left on train by David Batty and agencies 06/11/08. The reports says:

The files were left at Waterloo station, on a train heading to Surrey, by a senior security official. They were found by a passenger who handed them to the BBC's security correspondent, Frank Gardner.

The documents, which were compiled by the government's joint intelligence committee, contained the latest assessment of al-Qaida and a "top secret and, in some cases, damning" assessment of Iraq's security forces, said Gardner.
Not that it's news to those who have been paying attention. But our incomparable American press corps has been diligently burying Iraq War news in the back pages for months now.

Defend the bad against the worse."
