It's all horseshit. Greenwald gives examples of the same bullshit that gets drug out every couple months to placate the masses. Some basic Fixer math: If General Shinseki said in 2002 that he needed 250,000 troops to do the job right and we only have 160,000 there now, do you really think we can cut troop strengths and still 'achieve victory' as the Liar-in-Chief wants?
Listen to me: There will be great numbers of American troops in Iraq until Congress defunds the war or until a Democratic President gets us out. The Republicans do not want to leave, period, regardless of what they say.
