20,000 more reasons to mistrust the Pentagon

There is some sense, from independent sources, that violence is down in Iraq. But the underlying questions as to why are still not completely answered. The Washington Post talks about returnees, ghost towns, residual fears and the lack of promise for the future.

So, I'm willing to accept that violence has eased, and happy to do so, but less willing to believe it's because the surge worked.

The administration and the Pentagon would have us believe that the surge was the answer. But the Pentagon is also underestimating war wounded.

Skepticism prevails.
