2,332* to be exact.....


* 2,332 represents total number of US casualties in Bush's Iraq War. So Secretary of State Condi Rice was on the mark for once when she admitted that the Bush Administration has made "thousands of mistakes" in Iraq. Image courtesy Pat Bagley

Did you see retired former General Anthony Zinni on Meet the Press today? He essentially torpedoed the myth that John McCain among others still regurgigate about a worldwide intelligence failure re WMD's in Iraq. He was in the know and saw no evidence and neither did his colleagues. Over 2,300 soldiers and perhaps 50,000 Iraqi's - maybe more - have lost their lives so we can have permanent bases in the gulf. With apologies to Dick Cheney I prefer the virtues of conservation.

i take some comfort in the fact that the administration is beginning to recognize its mistake, but i fear that the bigger reality is that we'll pay for this blunder (if you can call the loss of 52,300 lives a blunder) big time.

i am afraid we will pay for it too...with a Presidential run from Rice!

I agree. Rice is on deck, as she's the most compliant standard bearer the neo-cons could field.

It seems so difficult for this administration to admit mistakes even when there are so many of them, they are so obvious and SO BIG. I was actually surprised by Rice's admission.

To intrepid liberal library - I saw McCain and Zinni on Meet the Press on Sunday. Zinni - Talk about a voice of reason. One that should have been listened to (among many others) BEFORE going to war so we wouldn't have gone to war. But we know the neocons chose not to listen to anyone that had a voice of reason.
