It's no missing white girl, but…

No one would be so crass as to suggest the administration is relieved that national attention is drawn away from the ongoing foreign policy debacle especially when Iraq is in the midst of some of its bloodiest days - yet. Or at how lucky they must feel that the worst killing spree in American history followed on the heels of the Imus story, another attention diverter.

Besides shutting up Imus provided a benefit beyond his distraction from the war as he was stoking the fires on the Walter Reed neglect story. "Republicans support the troops, Democrats support the vets" is not the message the administration wants but its better than the constant evidences of a foreign policy failure pouring into people's homes day and night from their televisions.

Even the tribulation Alberto Gonzales and investigation of lawyers being mistreated show keeps the tragedy that's become the Iraqi Civil War from the lede story in the evening news cycle. But this contains the explosive potential of undoing the administration. Will those missing emails be the missing 18.5 minutes on Nixon's White House tapes? Will this fulfill the curse?

What will next week bring?
