GRAPHIC=WARNER ON IRAQ One of Washington's heavy hitters


weighs in on Iraq...

Virginia Senator John Warner says
President Bush needs to start bringing
the troops home by Christmas.

The prominet Republican on
military matters says pulling some
troops from Iraq would send a "sharp
and clear" message that American
commitment there is not open-ended.

matched by the bleak findings of a new

National Intelligence Estimate...

unable to govern effectively..." the

al-Maliki "...will become more
precarious over the next six to 12
months..."

"All of Iraq's political leaders are
more interested in advancing their

some MILITARY successes. Regional
Sunni

leaders are turning against al Qaeda.
The number of attacks is down.



And Iraqi Security Forces "...have
demonstrated increasing professional

competence." BUT cannot...."...
conduct major operations independent of

the Coalition..."

(VO:) The White House seized on the
GOOD news.



(SOT/GORDON JOHNDROE, WH SPOKESMAN)



"The National Intelligence Estimates
updated judgments show that our
strategy

has improved the security environment

in Iraq but that we still face very

tough challenges ahead."



(VO:) But, experts warn as the
Maliki government struggles...Iraqis
are

beginning to lose faith. And there are
militant factions just waiting for

America's withdrawal.



(SOT/RIEDEL)



"They're getting ready for the
battle that's going to come after the

americans are gone, the real civil war
which is going to be even more intense

than the one we see now."

While the report clearly warns the
Malaki government is shaky, analysts
see no

viable alternative...no other political
leader capable of holding together a

functioning Iraqi government. Bob

The town is asking people to
voluntarily conserve water by not
washing cars, watering lawns or
refilling swimming pools.

Amherst pulls about 750 gallons a

minute from the Buffalo River, but a
drop in river levels has raised some
concerns.

If there's no rain or the voluntary
restrictions don't work, they could
become mandatory.

As a reminder to people to
conserve, the town has shut off its
water fountain in the Route 60 traffic

Now Zane Angle is being held
responsible for the man's death.

Angle was not at the wheel of
either vehicle, and not the one who
made him leave the Coffee Pot last
October.

Angle punched Brian Keith
Dickerson as Dickerson was waiting for
a cab on Brambleton Avenue.

The single punch knocked
Dickerson into the street. It was the
impact from the second car that killed
him.

Angle is now on trial for
involuntary manslaughter.

neighbors from James River to town for
a little county rivalry.

Remember, you can love your

this hard. Senior Amy Collier rattles

Last Season The six-foot four inch Beecher
verbally committed to USC back in May
and had planned to play basketball in
the SEC.

But her dad, former Virginia Tech
great Bobby Beecher, says Kylee's role

at South Carolina changed from when she
committed to the Gamecocks back in May
and due to some concerns from both
sides, they've agreed to move forward.

Liberty was one of the original
schools to court Beecher and the Flames
were always in her top five. The family
took an unofficial campus visit this
past weekend, and agreed that the
Liberty's program would be a good fit.

Kylee played all 64 minutes of
the state tournament this year scoring
32 points and grabbing 19 rebounds in
two games.

Liberty has won the Big South and
made it to the NCAA tourney seven of
the past eight years.
