Rhetoric and reality

Tony Snow yesterday:
Q What is the horizon of this administration to stop the killing in Iraq? And does the President have an exit strategy over and beyond "you guys in Iraq, shape up now," the collaborators and so forth who were with us and supposed to carry out our mission?

MR SNOW: What the President -- I think what you -- you focus on exit, Helen. The thing that we're trying to focus on is success.
(emphasis added)
Reality yesterday:
Twenty beheaded bodies were discovered Thursday on the banks of the Tigris River southeast of Baghdad and a car bomb killed another 20 people in one of the capital's busy outdoor bus stations, police said.
What success is he talking about?
