Didn't he already receive "advice"?

At this moment (5:28 PM in Brazil, 2:28, in EST, and 12:28 PM in the oft-ignored MST), has as its main headline, "Bush seeks advice on Iraq." (the headline when you click on the story is slightly different, but on the front page, it reads exactly as I wrote).

Didn't he already get advice last week in the form of the Iraq Study Group Report, from none other than James Baker, part of the "Bush recycle bin"? But apparently, since Uncle Jimmy's "advice" didn't fit what Bush wanted to hear (why else would he ignore the main two suggestions?), I guess he's turning elsewhere.

Maybe a better headline would be, "Bush seeks advice that agrees with what he's already determined to do."
