Shot to hell: Whatever our mission in Iraq was supposed to be, the result seems to be the opposite. The war is now costing us $4.8 billion a month, but instead ridding the country of ne'er-do-wells, Iraq is now the world's biggest training ground for terrorists. No wonder 16 members of the House are calling for an immediate withdrawal of troops.

And here's how Bush deals with bad news: when Colin Powell told the president "we're losing" the war in Iraq, Bush asked him to leave. When the CIA releases findings that Iraq is now ground zero for terror, the White House dismisses it as "speculative." (Via Cursor.)
