Iraqis say surge has failed. Only 25% say security has improved in past six months.

I wonder if General Petraeus will mention this when testifying to Congress today on how well General Petraeus has done in Iraq?

And by the way, general – lying to congress, even if you’re not sworn in, is a crime. Just thought I’d mention that since you’ve gotten into so much trouble in the past (and got balled out for it) for lying to the media, the congress and the public about the number of Iraqi security forces you supposedly trained, but really didn’t. Someone in congress needs to ask Petraeus about this today while testifying – did he or did he not get bawled out by Negroponte for misrepresenting the situation on the ground with the Iraqis security force training?
