CNN was rather annoying today in its European morning report. One of the anchors characterized the one week extension to which Iraqi delegates unanimously agreed as a "significant setback to the Bush administration". The report continued to portray the situation as being quite poor.
A Constitution, even a draft one, is a serious thing. A one week extension in a framework that essentially allows for two months 'extra time' is hardly a tragedy and should not have been entirely unexpected. The division of Iraq into autonomous regions, a deadlocked convention that would require new elections or sharia law enshrined in the document would be a serious setback. This extension hopefully will not need to be renewed and should not have been a surprise. CNN does its viewers a disservice with its ill-informed, or worse, intentionally biased reporting.
The CNN article on their website is much more balanced.
One of the reasons by Fox News is so popular. Unfortunately its not available overseas.
