Still lying to AmericaThe GAO report on Iraq criticizes the administration for misleading and inaccurate measurement of progress in that country. An excerpt here from the article in yesterday's NY Times:
Newly declassified data in the report on countrywide attacks in May shows that increases in violence during March and April that were touched off by an Iraqi government assault on militias in Basra have given way to a calmer period. Numbers of daily attacks have been comparable to those earlier in the year, representing about a 70 percent decline since June 2007, the data shows.From start to finish, the administration's approach to war in Iraq has been covered in deception, encrusted with delusion.
If the surge is working, why do they still need to lie to us?
