You would think that after all these years, the gov't would have learned the art of wartime propaganda. I'm surprised how the Bush adminstration has bungled the communications, almost to the point that they might lose credibility.

They should have down played our abilities and overstated the Iraqi strengths. They also should have floated out whisper casualty numbers that far exceeded their estimates so that during the war we all wouldn't be counting casualties by the person. This way when the numbers come in far below the whisper number, they'd look good.

I also see how it is possible that they could have so grossly underestimated the Iraqi capabilities. I'm not one who thinks that the fights in Southern Iraq were unexpected, but it is clear that the persistance has blown the Bush administration away.
