More Bad News From Iraq…

Posted by Mark on February 11, 2008

for Liberals, that is.   But, for Nancy Pelosi, news is only perception:

 House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said twice Sunday that Iraq “is a failure,” adding that President Bush’s troop surge has “not produced the desired effect.”

That’s true. For Dems, Iraq’s success is failure for them. The troop surge has most assuredly not produced the effect they desired, an Iraq more divided and deadly than ever.  As Iraq moves toward stability, the issue of Iraq for Democrats this fall truly is “lost.”

Worth following the thread.  Iraq Body Count is most assuredly a biased anti-war site, but likely has far more realistic numbers.  The discussion on IBC of the Lancet report is interesting.  Check it out for yourself.
