Another O’Hanlon Op-Ed


Another day, another Mike O’Hanlon op-ed in The New York Times. Looking at his chart and comparing August 2006 to August 2007, it’s shocking how non-impressive the quantifiable measures of progress are. O’Hanlon once again doesn’t address criticisms of his civilian casualties figures. He acknowledges that the political situation is FUBAR. He doesn’t remark on whether he sees the dramatic rise in the number of Iraqis held captive by the US — from 27,000 a year ago to 60,000 today — as progress or what.
