WH Pool Report: High Off of Sharpie Fumes Edition

In this White House Pool Report, notes are passed. Highlight:


The White House will soon be releasing some documents related to the turnover of power in Iraq, including a photo release of the note that Rumsfeld handed to Bush this morning notifying him of the handover. The note was written by Condi Rice, handed to Rumsfeld and passed to Bush.

Here's what it said: "Mr. President, Iraq is sovereign. Letter was passed to Bremer at 10:26 a.m. Iraq time -- Condi."

That's the end of the note, but Bush wrote, "Let Freedom Reign!'' with a black sharpie across the bottom.

Thank God someone thought to white out the "C.R.+G.W.B. 4ever."

Full report after the jump.

OK, OK, We're Finally Posting This Condi Item, OK? [Wonkette]

News from the pool hold

The White House will soon be releasing some documents related to the turnover of power in Iraq, including a photo release of the note that Rumsfeld handed to Bush this morning notifying him of the handover. The note was written by Condi Rice, handed to Rumsfeld and passed to Bush.

Here's what it said: "Mr. President, Iraq is sovereign. Letter was passed to Bremer at 10:26 a.m. Iraq time -- Condi."

That's the end of the note, but Bush wrote, "Let Freedom Reign!'' with a black sharpie across the bottom.

The White House will also be releasing the text of a letter from Bremer to Judge Mehat al Mahmood of the Court of Cassation (whatever that is) that the ``coalition provisional authority will cease to exist on June 28,'' as well as an exchange of letters establishing diplomatic relations between the U.S. and the new Iraqi government.

McClellan says he is "working on" an advance text of tomorrow's speech, but no promises.

Don't expect much from tonight's dinner. I'm told we will not see squat.
