AP Caught in Another Baldfaced Lie 
Powerline catches them in the act.

Comments:
I wouldn't call any of the reporting on that question and answer session a lie. I would say it is the media at work doing their normal stuff...and that is using what they can and not using the whole thing. But isn't that our nature? We, as a culture do not have time to read the whole story. But as a society we do not speak in sound bites...well...our politicians do.

So what we are faced with is a media that gives us what we want...want we have time to digest. But any thing other than a political campaign is built on sentences that make paragraphs...that build thought.

Rummy said each and every word he is reported as saying. The problem is that his entire answer is three paragraphs long. But to be honest, the context is still a glib response. The "you go to war with the army you have" statement is pure nonsense. Of course you do. And we went to war with ate-up procurement system too. And you also go to war with the civilians like Rummy who are not qualified to prosecute.

The fact is, as will all aspects of life, this is a multi-faceted, multi-parametered issue. And each failure, however small they may seem...add up. And what you are left with is an Army using a utility truck that was never designed for direct combat.

The truth is that he (and the DoD...and the Administration) should be held accountable for prosecuting a war from utility trucks instead of from Armed Vehicles that were deisgned for direct contact combat.

Yes...the enemy has adapted. Yes, the enemey has done things that are not normal. But this enemy didn't invent insurgencies. This enemy was not the first we have faced that has used out of the box thinking. But his (Rummy's) comment about going to war with the Army you have shows his own incompetence.

Gen. Zinni's old Centcom plan for taking over Iraq, destroying the regime, replacing it with a democratic body, and protecting the civilians from insurgency, crime, and looting was on the table in 2000. But they didn't use it. The fact is they didn't go to war with the Army we had...they went to war with the Army they wanted...a smaller, lighter, less capable Army riding on the backs of utility trucks.
