If this New York Times take is true, Good!  Let’s hope the WikiLeaks documents do lead to less support for the war.

Administration officials acknowledged that the documents, released on the Internet by an organization called WikiLeaks, will make it harder for Mr. Obama as he tries to hang on to public and Congressional support until the end of the year, when he has scheduled a review of the war effort.
