One Million Iraqi Deaths
A car bomb blew up in
the capital's Shiite Muslim neighborhood of Sadr City on Thursday, killing at
least four people, as a new survey suggested that
the civilian death toll from the war could be more than 1 million.
The figure from ORB, a British polling agency that has conducted several surveys in Iraq, followed statements this week from the U.S. military defending itself against accusations it was trying to play down Iraqi deaths to make its strategy appear successful.
"Petraeus gave his progress report on Iraq to Congress. Many of the senators commented to the general. Senator Barbara Boxer said Petraeus was overly optimistic; Mel Martinez of Florida thanked the general; Senator Larry Craig of Idaho said, 'There's something about a man in uniform.'" --Jay Leno

Religious freedom has sharply deteriorated in Iraq over the past year because of both the insurgency and violence targeting specific faiths, despite the U.S. military buildup intended to improve security, says a State Department report to be released Friday.

Bush: "The more successful we are, the more American troops can return home." Translation: stay the curse. - Grant Gerver, www.seriouskidding.com
From Dan Froomkin's Column
Jon Stewart had Bush biographer Robert Draper on his show last night, and
marveled at Draper's access to the president: "He was either disarmed by you --
or didn't think you were writing this stuff down."
Stewart's conclusion: "After reading this book I get the sense of a man who is very proud of the person he believes himself to be -- but he is, in fact, the opposite of that person."
Excellence is not a singular act, but a habit. You are what you repeatedly do.”
All Hat No Cattle has repeatedly said Bush only has one oar in the water!
