The Silence of the Lambs
Well, now the Iraqi government has met 15 of the 18 benchmarks (and the oil revenue sharing is actually being met by the budget rather than by separate legislation). Porcine, serial military defamer Rep. Jack Murtha (D-PA) still thinks its only 4 or 5 out of 17. What a buffoon. Rep. Mike McIntyre (D-N.C.) doubts the report (a Progress Denier).
We're not hearing a lot about the surge's failure due to lack of benchmarks met now, are we? Not hearing much about the gigantic success in Iraq lately, come to think of it. Was the press silent about our victories on Iwo Jima and, ultimately, in the Bulge? Silent in the months before VE and VJ day?
Hmmm? Wonder what's up with that?
