The war was going better than we were told?

in General Discussion edited January 2014
Not according to Bush:


Shock and awe said to many people that all we've got to do is unleash some might and people will crumble. And it turns out the fighters were a lot fiercer than we thought. Because, for example, we didn't come north from Turkey, Saddam Hussein was able to move a lot of special Republican Guard units and fighters from north to south. So the resistance for our troops moving south and north was significant resistance. On the other hand, our troops handled it, handled that resistance quite well.

That's about what we all heard at the time.

I'm sure we will see more stuff like this come to light now that it's over.
