Wolfie's Fuzzy Math: Maureen Dowd

Wolfie's Fuzzy Math
By Maureen Dowd
The New York Times
Sunday 02 May 2004

WASHINGTON

<This administration is the opposite of "The Sixth Sense."

They don't see any dead people.><snip>

<Asked during a Congressional budget hearing on Thursday how many American troops had been killed in Iraq, Mr. Wolfowitz missed by more than 30 percent. "It's approximately 500, of which - I can get the exact numbers - approximately 350 are combat deaths," he said.

As of Thursday, there were 722 deaths, 521 in combat. The No. 2 man at the Pentagon was oblivious in the bloodiest month of the war, with the number of Americans killed in April overtaking those killed in the six-week siege of Baghdad last year.><snip>

I know this is a few days old but the intro is killer Dowd and the picture of the philosopher genius/ world architect asleep at the switch is remarkable.
