BAGHDAD PETE

BAGHDAD PETE: He’s at it again: Reporter Arnett: U.S. War Plan Has Failed.

Arnett said it is clear that within the United States there is growing opposition to the war and a growing challenge to President Bush about the war’s conduct.

“Our reports about civilian casualties here, about the resistance of the Iraqi forces, are going back to the United States,” he said. “It helps those who oppose the war when you challenge the policy to develop their arguments.”

Well, at least we know what his objective is.

Clearly, Arnett’s expertise on things military is matched by his objectivity and keen analysis of American politics. Support for the war has been steadily increasing in the polls and is above 70%.

UPDATE: Michele reports that NBC has fired Arnett.

UPATE: Yahoo! News/AP has confirmation.
