Daily Kos Version

Quote:
Last night, trying desperately to gain public support for his failed war in Iraq, George W. Bush lied his ass off again. That was to be expected, considering the subject of today's entry, but here's where the boy tried to pull yet another of his fast ones. Last night the shrub stated that "forces in Iraq could be cut by about 20,000 by next July". But what gives the lie to this statement are two: omitting that the reduction was mandated by law, and by omitting that due to the inability of the military to sustain the "surge" beyond that time frame forces would have to be drawn back down to pre-surge levels anyway.

There were so many, shall we say, discrepancies in Bush's LIEatribe last night. In the Bush's Lies thread, I focused on the most blatant and ludicrous of his, shall we say, misrepresentations.

[/url]



VERY GOOD ANALYSIS OF BUSH'S SHEEPLE SPEECH LAST NIGHT.

Political realignment in Iraq's volatile Anbar province was Exhibit A for President Bush's argument Thursday that Iraq is a fight that the United States is winning.

A look at some of Bush's assertions.


BUSH SAID:

"Anbar province is a good example of how our strategy is working," Bush said, noting that just last year U.S. intelligence analysts had written off the Sunni area as "lost to al-Qaida."

FACT CHECK:

Early Thursday, the most prominent figure in a U.S.-backed revolt of Sunni sheiks against al-Qaida in Iraq was killed by a bomb planted near his home.

The killing of a chief Anbar ally hours before Bush spoke showed the tenuous and changeable nature of success in Anbar and Iraq at large.

Although Sunni sheiks have defied al-Qaida and largely allied with U.S. forces in Anbar, the province remains violent and al-Qaida remains a threat.

Abdul-Sattar Abu Risha died 10 days after he met with Bush during a surprise visit the U.S. leader made to highlight the turnaround in Anbar. The charismatic young sheik led the Anbar Salvation Council, also known as the Anbar Awakening - an alliance of clans backing the Iraqi government and U.S. forces.

The Sunni revolt against al-Qaida led to a dramatic improvement in security in Anbar cities such as Fallujah and Ramadi. Iraqis who had been sitting on the sidelines - or planting roadside bombs to kill Americans - have now joined with U.S. forces to hunt down al-Qaida in Iraq, whose links to Osama bin Laden's terror network are unclear.

Anbar is not secure, accounting for 18 percent of the U.S. deaths in Iraq so far this year - making it the second deadliest province after Baghdad.

Bush's top military commander in Iraq, Gen. David Petraeus, told Congress this week that Anbar's circumstances are unique and its model cannot be replicated everywhere in Iraq, but "it does demonstrate the dramatic change in security that is possible with the support and participation of local citizens."
