Triumphalism?

From the BBC reporters’ log:

Tony Blair’s tone was very sober, very reflective. There was none of the triumphalism of Paul Bremer. The key word in what he was saying was “reconciliation”. What Downing Street is hoping now is that the capture of Saddam will unlock all that resistance on the ground.

If there was triumphalism at that Bremer press conference, it came from Iraqis. Talk about missing the story.
