Barbara Bushs extended family 2.0

Trust is something to be earned - Who do i trust -actual military personal or some one from the -Bush dog and pony show.

Trust Airborne or Brookings Institute?

The claim that we are increasingly in control of the battlefields in Iraq is an assessment arrived at through a flawed, American-centered framework. Yes, we are militarily superior, but our successes are offset by failures elsewhere. What soldiers call the “battle space” remains the same, with changes only at the margins.

Late Nite FDL: That Other Op-Ed
Digby and Greg Sargent have been wondering aloud if the dirty Em Ess Em were going to hoist last Sunday’s Op Ed by real soldiers returning from Iraq on to their shoulders and parade it around town in the same way that they greeted that meretricious Think Tank Puff Piece by O’Hanlon and Pollack. The answer?

Of course not. The soldiers who wrote it are just enlisted men. They didn’t go to Cornell or even Columbia. They’re not members of the Serious Foreign Policy Elite. They’re probably not even from Good Families. What the hell do they know?
