Fiction and Fact


"Many parts of Iraq are stable now. But, uh, of course, what we see on television is the one bombing a day that discourages everyone.

Laura Bush on Larry King Live.


The Brookings Institution reports that there was an average of 185 insurgent and militia attacks a day in November of 2006. You can't deal with a problem until you face reality. Laura Bush is saying that people shouldn't believe what people read or see in the news about Iraq. It's rare to find aninstance when this administration didn't choose a fantasy-based narrative over problem solving. I'm waiting for Rockey Vaccarella to drive his FEMA trailer from Baghdad and tell the President how great things are going.
