Someone is drastically wrong, or totally lying, and I want to know who

Bob Woodward has just published a book in which he claims....

the Bush administration has not told the truth regarding the level of violence, especially against U.S. troops, in Iraq. He also reveals key intelligence that predicts the insurgency will grow worse next year.

In Wallace’s interview with Woodward, to be broadcast on 60 Minutes this Sunday, Oct. 1, at 7 p.m. ET/PT, the reporter also claims that Henry Kissinger is among those advising Mr. Bush.

According to Woodward, insurgent attacks against coalition troops occur, on average, every 15 minutes, a shocking fact the administration has kept secret. "It’s getting to the point now where there are eight-, nine-hundred attacks a week. That's more than 100 a day. That is four an hour attacking our forces," says Woodward.

The situation is getting much worse, says Woodward, despite what the White House and the Pentagon are saying in public. "The truth is that the assessment by intelligence experts is that next year, 2007, is going to get worse and, in public, you have the president and you have the Pentagon [saying], 'Oh, no, things are going to get better,'" he tells Wallace. "Now there’s public, and then there’s private. But what did they do with the private? They stamp it secret. No one is supposed to know," says Woodward.

"The insurgents know what they are doing. They know the level of violence and how effective they are. Who doesn't know? The American public," Woodward tells Wallace.

Troop deaths are on the deline, as I understand. Certainly, they are not on the upswing, for, if they were, we would hear about it on a continuous basis.

Therefore, my question is, if the violence has increased so dramatically, what is Bush doing with the bodies?

Jesus Christ, Woodward is a tool.

This is too big to fart with.... don't "they" get it?

Maybe the bodies are in the hidden fuselage of flight 93 (anyone checked Haley Barbour's house?)
