Colin Powell Tries To Put Some Spin On The Current Iraqi Turmoil

The Secretary Of State was making the rounds to assure the public that the current Iraqi situation was just a setback on the road to democracy.

Asked if the Sunnis and Shi'ites were cooperating to fight U.S. forces, he replied: "There might be some tactical-level contact between the two. There's been some evidence of that. But over the last 24 hours, I have seen nothing to suggest that there is some great alliance that's forming."

I'm surprised he didn't speak about the possible cooperation between the Sunnis and Shi'ites as a positive development that demonstrated their willingness to work together for a better Iraq. He could credit the administration for bringing them together.
