Poor, Dumb, Stupid Matt Drudge

Matt Drudge Rules Their World:

Here's the gist of the report: "The rate of killings of U.S. troops in Iraq has been on the decline, down by 60 percent, since the launch of the new security measures in Baghdad."... But if you read down into the story—as many Drudge readers surely will not—even the author of this quasi-article admits that it's bunk—check this out: "The statistics excluded U.S. troops killed in other governorates."... Say what?! The story purports to be about "Iraq."... This is the table of all the deaths.... The grim news is that the totals are much, much higher than suggested in this story, that tens of thousands of Drudge readers are relying upon for talking points.

  2. The really sad thing is, the only promise made by General Petraeus and the Bush administration regarding the escalation is that our casualties will go up.
