Join Dodd and Leahy to Restore Habeas

Go here to co sponsor the legislation.

*hattip to Digby for the linkee!

Sixty-eight percent of Americans say that U.S. troop levels in Iraq should either be reduced or that all troops should be removed - similar numbers to those before Mr. Bush's speech.

In fact, it is even worse than that, since the percentage of Americans who believe we should either maintain or increase our current troops levels in Iraq was higher B.P.[Before Petraeus] (30%) than it is A.P.[After Petraeus] (27%). Conversely, the percentage of Americans who want a troop reduction or complete withdrawal increased after the Petraeus Week (from 65% to 68%).

More revealingly still, only a small minority of Americans -- the depressingly familiar Bush dead-enders -- actually believe Gen. Petraeus' claims that "the surge has made things in Iraq better." A substantial majority of Americans disbelieves the assertions of The General Who Must Not be Challenged.


Seems like he's getting just as much support for his "surge" as he did for creating his Social Security Accounts...

Thanks to Glen Greenwald for the info, go there to read the rest of his excellent article. (Wait thru the commercial for a day-pass to salon...)
