Equivocal Truth of the Day
Concerning a fresh request for more troops in Iraq—
... you could ask that you increase them, actually, for good reasons, as well as, perhaps, not good reasons. —Gen. David Petraeus, Commanding General, Multi-National Force – Iraq, at a press briefing in Baghdad Thursday
Gen. Petraeus says that one of those (presumably good) reasons would be "to reinforce success." Later today I hope to examine what looks to be one of those "not good reasons."
