The Biggest Lie Of The Presidential Campaign: The Surge Has Worked
This four and a half minute video was made by an Iraqi journalist in Baghdad. "Five years of war... and we live like this?... Tell the world. I want the world to know, to see how we live here." This doesn't look like the part of Baghdad where Lindsey Graham skips in and gets his swell bargains on some cute little rugs; it's the part of Baghdad where Iraqis live... and die. "In my 3 weeks back home in Baghdad 179 people were killed and no Baghdadi ever mentioned the surge to me." But why should they? That's just for domestic audiences here in America.
I just heard Tony Fratto -- last seen lying about the forged CIA letter making the case for war-- saying on CNN that Iraq doesn't have to pay back any of the rebuilding costs, despite the tens of billions of dollars they made this year in windfall oil profits. Why not? Because we'll have a long term ally, he said... to stand with us in this dangerous part of the world. I wonder what they're smoking in the White House basement these days. Same thing they're smoking on the Double Talk Express.
