I guess that's a contradiction in terms or an oxymoron or some such thing since it seems that lying IS the official Repubican occupation.
Alan Simpson on Faux News Sunday: "we recommended the surge." NO, You, the Baker commission/Iraq study group, did not. The surge was in direct contradiction to the final report, which called for a phased withdrawal, as well as diplomatic engagement with Iran and Syria. The Surge was pushed by, surprise, The American Enterprise Institute and surprise surprise warmongers and Repubicans John McInSane and Joe LIEberman.
Of course his statement went totally unchallenged.
