Can You Possibly Be Any More Disingenuous?

An AP story begins thusly:

Iraqi violence down and gov't confidence rising

BAGHDAD - Signs are emerging that Iraq has reached a turning point. Violence is down, armed extremists are in disarray, government confidence is rising and sectarian communities are gearing up for a battle at the polls rather than slaughter in the streets.

Those positive signs are attracting little attention in the United States, where the war-weary public is focused on the American presidential contest and skeptical of talk of success after so many years of unfounded optimism by the war's supporters...

Exsqueeze me? The AP is telling me that the problem is unfounded optimism rather than years of relentless pessimism on the part of such as the AP?
