Posted in Main Blog (All Posts) on April 10th, 2007 5:21 pm by HL

I’m heading over to a moveon.org house party in which the big 3 will be on a live video hookup and other house parties from around the country will be able to ask them questions. I went one of these one other time when Fahreinheit 9/11 Came out and they had Michael Moore, it was a nice little party. This one is at a different location. Full report in the morning. See you then.

Bush Lied Big Time About Troop Surge

Bush’s ‘Surge’ Several Times Larger, More Expensive than Administration Claimed


When George W. Bush announced he would execute a “troop surge” to send more American soldiers to Iraq and Afghanistan in January 2007, it was billed as an increase of slightly over 20,000 soldiers that would cost less than six billion dollars.

“America will change our strategy to help the Iraqis carry out their campaign to put down sectarian violence and bring security to the people of Baghdad,” Bush announced in a prime-time televised address. “This will require increasing American force levels. So I’ve committed more than 20,000 additional American troops to Iraq.”

The “surge,” recognized as an escalation by many, was immediately controversial for several reasons — not the least of which was a concern that the increase of 20,000 American soldiers might turn into a much larger US presence in Iraq, and a much more expensive one, than promised.

Three months after Bush’s announcement, those fears have come to fruition.

Let’s take a look at the numbers, in both troops and dollars…

HL’s Take
The Democrats keep giving Bush a mile, and he continues taking 10. Of course right about now They are probably saying. “who could have forseen giving Bush what he wanted would result in him wanting even more (and more and more) of course since Bush is in the business of war for profit (you didn’t think he was in the business of helping America did you?) He will keep wanting still more, and he will get it.
