Iraq: Generals vs. the administration

Most generals, anyway, when they testified before the Armed Services Committe and a rather ticked-off McCain. Most appear to have given honest evaluations of the situation in Iraq, but not that crafty Myers, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. He's a booster.

The disturbing question it raises is why it's still considered acceptable for our government to lie to us on a daily basis. When exactly did that happen? I know, I know-- as soon as Rove was in the catbird seat.
