Surging to Nowhere

I think most sane people should realize by now that the "surge" is just a phonied up deal to allow Cheney to keep killing U.S. troops for no good reason until he leaves office in 2009.

U.S. officials say the number of civilian casualties in the Iraqi capital is down 50 percent. But U.S. officials declined to provide specific numbers, and statistics gathered by McClatchy Newspapers don't support the claim.

The number of car bombings in July actually was 5 percent higher than the number recorded last December, according to the McClatchy statistics, and the number of civilians killed in explosions is about the same.
