People Who Hate America...

...disregard the official spin.

Kevin Drum teams up with Juan Cole to dispel the "troop casualties are down" lie.

It would seem to me to be an unnecessary lie in the first place since I would expect to see troop casualties go up if we've got more troops over there actively engaging the enemy. It'll be interesting to see what happens now that the British have turned the south over to the sectarian-challenged Iraqi police. I wonder if 1) the surged troops will need to drift south to cover the gap, or 2) the south will become the new whack-a-mole reprieve location.

And jeebers... 120 degrees in Iraq. Our troops, every last one, are freakin' superheroes.
