    From the article you linked:


    That's it?????

    It's better but if we leave it might get worse...or maybe not...

    Spin and BS, the article amounts to we don't know, it might get worse it might not.

    BFD

    Wonder how much the GAO spent on this brilliant analysis.

    As the GAO is technically a branch of the Executive Branch of Gov't, George and his minions are well aware of the cost.. it is not like Consumer Reports did this it is a Gov't agency.

    I think you mean "Wonder how much we taxpayers spent to get this brilliant analysis."

    How much did the taxpayers spend on Bush's 'we'll be greeted as liberators,' assesment? Yet you're more than willing to keep giving him mulligans.

    At least this one is accurate.

    What a surprise, another disengenuous thread started by mikey. I think this might be the last time I open up one of your threads, as you've lost all credability with your headings. The article says it doesn't think that the improvements the troop build up has resulted in, can be sustained when ISF forces take over for the built up US troops. So basically, as usual, the link you provided proves your own point wrong. Good job. The troops build up IS working, and the doubts are whether or not the Iraqi's can sustain it when we're gone.
