Figures Used to Show Success of Surge Excludes Bomb Victims

President Bush discussed this issue with Charlie Rose on April 24th  explaining that “If the standard of success is no car bombings or suicide bombings, we have just handed those who commit suicide bombings a huge victory,”

However, the number of casualties due to explosive attacks has risen. In March, the first full month of the security 323 people were killed. Through April 24, this figure is 365, McClatchy reports.

President Bush discussed the issue with Charlie Rose on Tuesday, explaining that “If the standard of success is no car bombings or suicide bombings, we have just handed those who commit suicide bombings a huge victory,” McClatchy reports.

Iraq specialist James Denselow, who is based at Chatham House, the London based foreign policy think tank, believes that not counting victims of explosive attacks is misleading and does not present a true picture of whether the surge is having the desired effect, McClatchy reports.

“Since the administration keeps saying that failure is not an option, they are redefining success in a way that suits them,” Denselow said.

General Petraeus, the top US commander in Iraq, said this week that the US does not expect the surge to stop bombings, McClatchy reports.

Thank you McClatchy Tribune as viewed on IraqSlogger.com

We are so used to accepting bogus figures and claims from this administration, no wonder we have become complacent.  The White House occupant is the most successful Shock Jock this country has ever seen.  I fear this country has fallen into the mode of “if you ignore it, it will go away”. 

Well, that makes us as stupid as King George!

    Bush could care less about actual numbers. He tried to hide the actual numbers of American deaths and he still won’t give out real numbers on the injured. Why would he give real numbers of Iraqi’s?
