Bush and Maliki meet to discuss the future. Bush vows continued American support. Of course there were those among us who said Sadr would not let the meeting take place. There were also those who said the leaked memo from Hadley stating dissatisfaction with Maliki would kill all cooperation. And yet somehow the meeting took place and after more than two hours of discussion the President still stood firm. Unlike some other people out there Bush never acts as if his hair is on fire.
