Sovereignty watch

I'm sure everyone has seen this, but just to get it on the record:
Iraqi officials stepped up pressure on the United States on Tuesday to agree to a specific timeline to withdraw American forces.

In Washington, the State Department...reiterated that the United States fully intends to withdraw troops from Iraq when conditions are appropriate to do so.

"We want to withdraw. We will withdraw. However, that decision will be conditions-based," said Gonzalo Gallegos, a State Department spokesman. "We're looking at conditions, not calendars here."
Sovereignty? What sovereignty?

The Bush administration has finally, if only very occasionally, gotten around to uttering the word "recession." Do you suppose they might actually utter the word "occupation" as well? Even in regard to a question posed by the press corps? Helen Thomas, are you listening?
