Pre-production begins

In the film business, pre-production is the term used for the work needed to be done before the film shooting begins. It includes ironing out all the business elements, getting the script in shape, building the sets.

It's what began yesterday in preparation for the September report to Congress and the world about the effectiveness of the Bush administration's military surge in Iraq. It isn't working, and authorities there, like General Petraeus have begun to drop broad hints that expected goals won't be met, while Ambassador Ryan Crocker appeared on Meet the Press in what Arianna Huffington called a robotic appearance to give a sneak preview of the September script.
