To the Editor:
Re “Bush Clutches at Middle East Legacy, But Too Late” [Oct. 29]:
As usual in Bush’s strategy, it’s cherry-picking time. General Petraeus cherry-picked all of his statistics to favor Bush’s so-called strategic surge.
Bush’s statement that the G.I.’s will remain in Iraq after his term is up proves beyond a reasonable doubt that his mission is unaccomplished.
The emperor is stark naked.
