The headline of this AP piece looks more like an Onion headline.
Bush blames rise in Iraq violence on U.S. success
And what is it with the Onion lately. I thought that satire involved exaggeration. Seems like they are just reporting the news.
Some recent headlines at the satirical weekly include...
Muscleman Put in Charge of World's Fifth Largest Economy
CIA-Leak Scapegoat Still At Large
Just looks like the evening news to me.
[update: should thank friend and coworker Tom for pointing these Onion headlines out]
