I SAID "YES" BEFORE I SAID "NO", BEFORE... Reid Says Yes To Short Term "Surge" In Troops: Leading Dems Say No Way... | The Huffington Post: "The Senate's top Democrat offered qualified support Sunday for a plan to increase U.S. troops in Iraq, saying it would be acceptable as part of a broader strategy to bring combat forces home by 2008." Bloomberg Printer-Friendly Page: "Jan. 5 (Bloomberg) -- House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said they won't support any proposal by President George W. Bush to increase U.S. forces in Iraq, an option he is considering as he works on a new plan to quell sectarian violence there. 'Adding more combat troops will only endanger more Americans and stretch our military to the breaking point for no strategic gain,' the top two congressional Democratic leaders wrote in a letter to Bush. 'It would undermine our efforts to get the Iraqis to take responsibility for their own future. We are well past the point of more troops for Iraq.'"

"Snipet" (pronounced: snipe - it) is not a word.It is a derivative of two words: "Snipe" and "Snippet".

Miriam Webster defines Snipe as: to aim a carping or snide attack, or: to shoot at exposed individuals (as of an enemy's forces) from a usually concealed point of vantage.

Miriam Webster defines Snippet as: : a small part, piece, or thing; especially : a brief quotable passage.

In short, "Snipets" are brief, snide shots at exposed situations from a concealed vantage point.
