At this point, who can keep track of history? Obviously not John McCheese. Today he tried to clear up the confusion about his statements that were edited out of his interview with Katie Couric. After this story came out, CBS was forced to post the real interview. McCeese told Katie that the Sunni Awakening was a result of the surge and that the surge protected certain Sunni leaders like Sheik Abdul Sattar Buzaigh al-Rishawi (aka Abdul Sattar Abu Risha). You may recall that the Sunni or Anbar Awakening started before the surge was ordered and that Sheik Abu Risha was assassinated after the surge started. Boy that surge kept him safe as houses, didn't it? But today, McCheese explained it all away in the cheese aisle in Bethlehem, PA. I mean if you are going to rewrite history and redefine what a surge is, you should be surrounded by lots of dairy products. This where he revealed that there was a secret surge that only he was told about and that is what led to the Anbar Awakening. He has now managed to make the time line of what happened about as clear as mud and came out of this mess looking like he is in the early stages of dementia.
