McCain, Leiberman right as always... Iraq is going great!
The U.S. military death toll in March, the first full month of the security crackdown, was nearly twice that of the Iraqi army, which American and Iraqi officials say is taking the leading role in the latest attempt to curb violence in the capital, surrounding cities and Anbar province, according to figures compiled on Saturday.Yet Lieberman and McCain are still crowing about the progress in Iraq. Lieberman, in yet another disgusting utterance, recently said that "at last" there were signs of real progress in Iraq, ignoring the fact that he's been touting how well things are going there for years. "at last"?
And McCain tossed away his last shred of "straight talk" cred by saying that it's so safe in Bagdhad that generals routinely go driving around in unarmed Humvees and people can just stroll around at will.
This at the same time people INSIDE the fortified Green Zone where the "important" Americans hide, were ordered that they should never go outdoors without a flak-jacket and helmet, as several people have been killed inside the Green Zone by recent mortar attacks.
What planet are these folks on?
