... just not in the way BushCo and their media mouthpieces
would have us believe. Consider this report
from The New York Times
"More American and coalition troops died in Afghanistan last month than during any other month since the American-led invasion began in 2001, the latest evidence of a strengthening Taliban insurgency that has menaced NATO forces and reclaimed control over some southern and eastern parts of the country. ...
The violence in Afghanistan has surged at the same time as the number of attacks and American deaths in Iraq have fallen. ...
The violence has spiked even as the number of foreign troops in Afghanistan approaches its highest level since 2001."
So, now not only are we not making much military progress and nothing resembling political progress in Iraq. In Afghanistan, where al-Quaeda existed prior to our invasion, we are losing ground too arguably because BushCo lied our way into Iraq and refuse to admit the disaster they've created. There is a legacy. Good thing there is a holiday weekend coming up. Maybe no one will notice.
