Five Years After “Mission Accomplished”

President George W. Bush speaks triumphantly before the “Admiral Kelly, Captain Card, officers and sailors of the USS Abraham Lincoln, my fellow Americans, major combat operations in Iraq have ended. In the battle of Iraq, the United States and our allies have prevailed.” That’s what he said after landing like Top Gun on the deck of the aircraft carrier. So he was a little too optimistic. He never was one to sweat the details. Someone else would take care of that. 150,000 of them are still trying — and dying. [Source: Salem-News.Com]
