When the Boat Sinks, Some Bail
and the water is pouring in...
Nebraska Republican Sen. Chuck Hagel is angry. He's upset about the more than 1,700 U.S. soldiers killed and nearly 13,000 wounded in Iraq. He's also aggravated by the continued string of sunny assessments (lies*) from the Bush administration, such as Vice President Dick Cheney's recent remark that the insurgency is in its "last throes." "Things aren't getting better; they're getting worse. The White House is completely disconnected from reality," Hagel tells U.S. News. "It's like they're just making it up as they go along. The reality is that we're losing in Iraq." [ more ]
Sometimes jumping ship is the only sane thing to do. Just where is the tipping point?*my interpretation (but yet another example of Congress being lied to, an impeachable offense)
