The Pentagon may have its problems, but at least the domestic psy-ops division is still going strong. The AP reports that the Pentagon has sent pro-war lawmakers a 74-page “debate prep book” to help them win hearts and minds here at home.

With the House beginning an election-year debate on the war, the Pentagon suggested lawmakers make the point that “Iraq will become a haven for terrorists, murderers and thugs,” if the United States leaves “before the job is done.”

“We cannot cut and run,” it says at another point, anticipating Democratic calls for a troop withdrawal on a fixed timetable.
