Note the word 'honestly' and other like-minded terminology in the following:<br><br>
"The United States is facing increasingly deadly attacks in Iraq because, <b>as in the Vietnam war</b>, it failed to <b>honestly assess facts on the ground</b>, according to a new think tank report.<br><br>
"The report, prepared by Anthony Cordesman, senior fellow of the Center for Strategic and International Studies, said administration spokesmen had appeared to live "in a fantasyland"[/c] when giving accounts of <b>events in Iraq</b>.<br><br>
"Cordesman, a former Pentagon official who has made several trips to Iraq, said Iraqi spies were a serious threat to U.S. operations and that there was no evidence insurgent numbers were declining despite vigorous U.S. and Iraqi counterattacks.<br><br>
"The report was updated after Tuesday's attack on a U.S. base in Mosul which killed 22 people. Defense officials said the explosion was apparently caused by a suicide bomber, underscoring the problem of infiltrators in U.S. operations."<br><br>

More evidence that Bushistas have been sold a bill of goods.
