From C&J on DailyKos:

CHEERS to breaking the spell. (via Raw Story) Congressman Gil Gutknecht (R-MN) on Iraq June 15:

“Members, now is not the time to go wobbly. Let’s give victory a chance.”

Congressman Gil Gutknecht on Iraq after actually visiting the place:

“The condition there is worse than I expected. I have to be perfectly candid: Baghdad is a serious problem. […] Baghdad is worse today than it was three years ago. […] We learned it’s not safe to go anywhere outside of the Green Zone any part of the day. […] All of the information we receive sometimes from the Pentagon and the State Department isn’t always true. […] What I think we need to do more is withdraw more Americans”

Welcome to the reality, kiddo. Ain’t it a kick??

and this is exactly why the bush administration has to censor all the facts, and filter out the bad stuff. this is why the media’s seeming inability to get behind the story, and do substantial analysis, this is why that matters. a congressman shouldn’t have to go to iraq and see reality firsthand to get the facts.
