Oh Snap.

By the way, Andrew Sullivan notes an interesting coincidence:
The eighth anniversary of "Mission Accomplished." To the day. The 66th anniversary of the anouncement of the death of Adolph Hitler. To the day.
Actually, I do wonder if the date of the mission was changed... if Obama realized at some point, "Man, this day is pretty close to the 'Mission Accomplished' stunt President Bush pulled. We've been planning this for 8 months: Let's delay the mission by a day or two to tweak Bush's nose a little bit." I wouldn't discount that. Or maybe it was the Hitler connection that they were shooting for; those guys at the White House don't miss much.
