"This is the operative statement. The others are inoperative."

Paul Greenberg - Good News is No News Media Bias? That can't be.

And Obama seems to have his very own Ministry of Truth.
Barely conceivable to some, anyway. Last year Barack Obama, who's now cinched his party's presidential nomination, was still arguing that the Surge would fail: "I am not persuaded that 20,000 additional troops in Iraq is going to solve the sectarian violence there. In fact, I think it will do the reverse."

But don't look for any of his anti-Surge statements on Senator Obama's Web site, not any more. They've just been purged. And replaced by a new, more militant stance. To borrow a phrase from Ron Ziegler, Richard Nixon's hapless press secretary: "This is the operative statement. The others are inoperative."
Remember when Mr "Don't Say My Middle Name" was convinced we must fail in Iraq? Apparently his web team doesn't remember that time either.

Greenberg takes a few swipes at Hillary as well, and her attacks - unjustified it turns out - on General David Petraeus. Easy to do since the General was right and Hillary was wrong.
