CNN does 'reality check' on White House's Iraq progress report
http://rawstory.com/news/2007/CNN_Iraq_report_inaccurat...

one little snip from article:


Michael Ware reporting:

Ware then pointed out a couple of reasons why sectarian violence might be diminishing even without the efforts of American troops. "About 50,000 Iraqis a month have been fleeing this country or have been displaced," he stated. "So there's simply less targets for the sectarian violence. ... The ethnic cleansing has been successful. ... Finally, we're seeing the American military is now allowing some Sunni neighborhoods to have their own Sunni militias. ... If there's a Sunni militia in your neighborhood, the police death squad can't get to you."

1. Sectarian violence because the sectarians have killed each other off
That's marked down as a success!

3. yup, we broke it and we own it.
invading a country just for its resources, and killing everyone, unfortunately we will pay.
