GAO’s Iraq Progress Report Has Classified Material In It?

Apparently so, else why would Senate Armed Services Chairman Carl Levin, D-Mich send a letter to SecDef Gates urging him to declassify parts that were kept out of the public eye, as mentioned here.

These parts, one learns, are parts that deal with the levels of sectarian violence in Iraq. The public version of the report concludes that “it was impossible to measure whether sectarian violence in particular had decreased because it is often difficult to conclude the intent behind an attack.”

Which sounds like a load of horse manure.

Levin thinks so, also, and apparently has read evidence to the contrary in the GAO report, and wants that made public, too.

Is it just me or are you tired of being lied to, tired of receiving only selective information? Tired of hearing the word “Progress”? It’s getting old and I think the people deserve the unvarnished truth, warts and all.

Honest to Jesus if I have to hear that guy utter the word “Progress” again I believe that it will fill me with the urge to defecate.

Gotta go now . . .
