Eat At Joes

Just a regular Joe who is angry that the USA, the country he loves, is being corrupted and damaged from within and trying to tell his fellow Americans the other half of the story that they don’t get on the TV News.

Bush Administration Lying About Number of Wounded US Troops in Iraq

The Bush Administration has found a perfect way to reduce the number of casualties in Iraq…They have changed the definition of “nonmortal casualties” which means troops who have been wounded, but not killed, so that the number of casualties is lessened by 16,164 troops. Yes, that’s right. The Bush Administration has found by changing what “casualties” is defined as they can lie to the American people about the number of American men and women injured in the Iraq War. The definition that has been on the books for generations is now modified to hide 16,164 men and women and make the Iraq War seem less dangerous. They have already subtracted the 16,164 troops from the official counts.

This will make any comparisons to prior wars comparing apples and oranges and bias any comparisons in favor of the Bush Administration.

In addition it conceals the real cost of the Iraq War. Paul Sullivan, director of research and analysis of Veterans for America and formerly a project manager at the Department of Veterans Affairs, said that the department was not prepared to provide the health care that returning veterans would need for mental and physical disabilities.

Don’t you feel safer? Neither do I!

Impeach Bush and Cheney NOW!

Maybe they are changing the definition of casualty in order to pimp veterans of their hard earned benefits.

BTW - One Dem is not backing down from this outfit. “Whose Slurring Who? The Bush Administration Needs to Get Their Facts Straight about Iraq”

Love him or hate him, Representative John Conyers (MI) brings up issues America needs to confront. [more]

You're probably right. They get get a two fer by screwing our vets and downplaying how many of our troops are sacrificing. I agree with you on John Conyers. While the last Congress was doing nothing but rubber stamping the White House's whims, Conyers was one of the lone voices pointing out their sins to the American people. Thanks for posting a comment!
