More Nonsense From The Boy King
Courtesy of Reuters:
[President] Bush said on Thursday that nearly 100,000 fully trained and equipped Iraqi soldiers, police officers and other security personnel are already working ….So, Bush says 100,000. The Defense Department 8,169. A mere 91,831 discrepancy. I guess with expectations of truth and accuracy already so low, blatant fabrications such as this go essentially unnoticed. Sad.
But documents prepared by Defense Department officials and given to lawmakers show that ....only 8,169 have had the full eight-week academy training.
