Interesting tidbit.

Front page of the BBC online today (just before US election day) news that the tours of duty of thousands of US soldiers in Iraq are to be extended.

This is a potential vote loser for Bush on the day before the election.
A quick survey of CNN, Fox, USA Today, NYT, and the Washington Post … none of them mention it in any prominent place.

Update: now CBC is running the story of the tour extensions. Interesting to note that these soldiers will already have voted and that George bin Dubya has moved the goal posts.
