Don't Say 'Insurgents', Say 'al Qaeda!'
More in the annals of spin from the Bush Assministration. Clearly, they're thinking that by conflating the broad sectarian insurgency in Iraq with al Qaeda, they stand to score more points with the portion of the American public that's 1) not been paying attention or 2) is deeply invested in neocon fantasies. Thus, the 5% representing al Qaeda becomes 100% of the insurgency (nevermind the Shiite Mahdi Army, Baathists, etc.). Preznit Bushit strikes again.
