THE reporting out of Baghdad continues to be hysterical and dishonest. There is no civil war in the streets. None. Period.

I'd be curious to see the reporting that claimed that there was "civil war in the streets." Most of what I observed consistently noted that sectarian violence was on the upsurge, and that Iraq faced the prospect of civil war - but not that civil war had broken out.

That observation - that Iraq was perilously close to civil war - was shared by U.S. Ambassador Zalmay Khalizad, who observed that "I think the country came to the brink of civil war."

Would the Post claim that his his assessment is "hysterical and dishonest"? If so, perhaps the Administration should re-evaluate its choice for that important position.
