Unhappy Troops

Another false thing Fred Barnes said the other day was that our troops in Iraq are really happy to be there. The audience found that not credible (“read the letters to Stars and Stripes” I shouted, but couldn't be heard over the other incredulous reactions). Now that low morale is on the front page of the Washington Post, maybe he'll retire that talking point? See Many Troops Dissatisfied, Iraq Poll Finds: “A broad survey of U.S. troops in Iraq by a Pentagon-funded newspaper found that half of those questioned described their unit's morale as low and their training as insufficient, and said they do not plan to reenlist.”

Clinton left Bush a great Army, and Bush is destroying it.
