In Case Anyone's Counting

Last January a group of Iraqi insurgents infiltrated an American base in Karbala. They killed one American in the initial assault and kidnapped four others that were eventually executed. The attack had been worrisome to Pentagon officials because of its sophistication. The insurgents got onto the base by using official looking black SUV's, and seemed to know the layout of the buildings.

The Pentagon has now concluded that assailants also had the help of local Iraqi police who supplied them with uniforms, equipment, and inside information. It also looks like Iranians may also have been involved.

The Iraqi police!?!?! These are the people that we are training to supposedly take responsibility for the security of their country. If they can't be trusted, then who's left?

It should be pretty obvious to anyone who doesn't have their head up their ass that this so-called "war" is lost. We have now been fighting in Iraq six months longer than it took us to win World War II. And what do we have to show for it? Not a damn thing.

Oh, wait. My mistake. Actually, we now have over 3600 flag draped coffins to show for it.

I wonder if President Bush is proud of that?
