Think about that for a moment. Based on AP's 'journalism' over the last two years, wouldn't you have assumed a clear majority of Iraqis opposed our presence in Iraq, enough to take up arms even?
As it turns out, most of what AP publishes is anti-American, agenda-driven guano. The headline is the worst possible spin to put on the poll results (assuming the poll is valid anyway). Once again, buried in the article:
In other poll findings:
_Two-thirds express confidence in the Iraqi army and in police.
_Half now say the U.S.-led invasion of Iraq was wrong, up from 39 percent in February 2004.
_More than six in 10 say they feel safe in their neighborhoods, up from 40 percent in June 2004.
_Six in 10 say local security is good, up from half in February 2004.
AP: falsifying, propaganda-driven, anti-American, scumbag, lying liars, and the lies they tell.
Amazing how they can turn on a dime and spin only half the Iraqis thinking occupation is a bad thing, after two years. Bush has been tying draw down to the Iraqi security forces for a long time. This poll suggests Bush could beat Howard Dean's "timetable" if Howie's not still claiming we have no chance of winning in Iraq. It's hard to keep track of Howard Dean without knowing which poll he read last.
