Iraq War Timeline & Murtha says all is not well
Think Progress has a great timeline that sums up the war's 36 months. Sadly, it pretty much reads like a timeline of failures and fuckups. And John Murtha puts to rest the spin the War Fans spew about the "liberal media" squashing all of the "good" news that is overflowing out of Iraq (via Crooks & Liars): "Well, they said the same thing about Vietnam. They said the same thing over and over and over about Vietnam. They said, "We're winning the war in Vietnam." That-you could go back and get quotes from Vietnam, and you’d see the same kind of reports, 'The media’s the one that’s distorting; everything’s going fine in Vietnam.' Well, everything’s not going fine in Iraq." Now Murtha needs to clue in Hillary & Lying Lieberman.
