What's wrong with this picture
As a participant in the Democratic processes that govern this country, I'd like to know how much progress we're actually making in Iraq and Afghanistan, for that matter. Do we control more of Iraq than 12 blocks in downtown Baghad and the city of Basra? Can anyone drive to the Baghdad airport? Remember when the drive to the airport was a no-person's zone? Is it any better? What about Afghanistan? Does our guy Karzai control more of his country than Kabul? I can't figure it out, can you? Where are those maps we used to see in previous conflicts showing how much of the country is under enemy control? I haven't seen one, not since the last Iraq war led by President Bush's father. What's the deal on that? Has that type of information been classified, and why?
