So, the Republicans and Democrats are weighing in on the testimony of Gen. David Patreus and Ambassador Ryan Crocker before Congress this week and, what do you know, many simply do not believe the Bush administration's rosy assessment of progress. The "surge" may well be working but, how can anyone tell? Has the government started showing the map illustrating how much of Iraq is under U.S. or Iraqi government control? That answer is no. So, what does the government think is going to happen? They have repeatedly lied about Iraq; how many times can they do that and still expect everyone to believe them? That's why more than 50 percent of the country doesn't support the war. It may well have been a good idea at some point, but the bungling Bush administration has completely blown it.
