The White House issues another of its hilarious “fact checks” refuting “key myths” about Iraq, such as the one that Iraq was formed out of Zeus’s snot.
Also, Myth 1: “The war ‘is lost.’” It so is not. We know exactly where it is.
Myth 3: The U.S. is playing “whack-a-mole” in Iraq. It’s really more like that game where you try to pick up a teddy bear with a claw.
Myth 9: Maliki is an agent of Iran and/or Sadr. In fact, “There is no evidence that Maliki or his wing of the Da’wa Party is an agent or puppet of Iran.”
Read the whole thing; it’s chock-full of bitter laughs.
