Atrios on tomorrow night's Bush speech at Fort Bragg:

My prediction is that the goal is to make people believe that we're at war in a country called Afghaniraqistan.

Yeah, sure -- but I wonder if that's the sole purpose of the speech. As he and Kos have pointed out, Dick Cheney told CNN last week,

Since 9/11, we've had people like Chuck Hagel and other politicians and we've had people in the press corps and commentators who've said we can't do Afghanistan.

I wonder if Bush -- with servicemembers as a backdrop -- will make the disgraceful decision to launch a Rovian, Cheneyesque attack on the patriotism of those who disagree with him. That would seem to be a logical next step, wouldn't it?
