Basra Pullout. British Withdrawl Leaves Basra Unprotected

From the NY Times:

The British Army began withdrawing from its last base in Basra’s city center early Monday, a move that will leave Iraq’s second-largest city without foreign forces for the first time since the American-led invasion in 2003.

The pullout came as two of Britain’s most influential generals during the Iraq war delivered scathing attacks on the Americans for their handling of the campaign after Saddam’s defeat.

Will the US Corrupt Conservative Media pick this up? Nah, didn’t think so.

If we know that the Bush administration lies to us about the most important of issues, and the Bush administration controls the news and information about Iraq that comes in to the American media, and the other world media outlets paint a completely different picture of Iraq than Bush does, who are we to believe?

I guess things are going just swimmingly in Iraq.
