"Office of Dubious Information"
"Office of Dubious Information" that's the latest finding of who came up with the information for the lead up to the Iraq war. When I heard this I just had thoughts of impeachment. Not only did this Bush administration lie to us they made an office position in the Pentagon to do that. The Troop Surge, which Bush came up with, is more smoke and mirrors. He's sending 21,500 troops but he didn't say how many support troops there would be. There's also the matter of the amount of civilian contractors in Iraq which last I heard was around 100,000 people. Now there's a call for more civilian workers to go to Iraq to rebuild the country. We hear about the amount of troops dying but don't really hear the amount of civilian workers being killed unless it's a helicopter crashing or being shot down. We did hear about the guys that were killed and strung up on the bridge. The other day I heard about a group killed and strung up on power lines. Then there are the convoys that get blown up but we generally only hear about the ones they died with troops. Hearing how many Iraqis has been killed since the war started varies from tens of thousands to 650,000 depending on whom you believe. One the governments own web site that said that there were 50,000 but it was revised after a negative story that came out about the lack of health care for the wounded troops. If anything this administration will go down in history for the amount of lies it's told the public. Simple bottom line is a oil president and vice president tied to oil companies went to war for the oil. If the war on terror was so important that the problems in Afghanistan would have been solved first.
