This chart from the US Central Command is a thing of beauty. It accurately and succinctly gives our leaders a readout of how things are going in Iraq, carefully constructed so an idiot could make sense of any situation report in about 30 seconds. Whatever tiny portion of our hard-earned taxes, Treasury Bonds sold to foreign rubes, or counterfeited greenbacks went into dolling that chart up were worth it. The New York Times leaked it, in an article descriptively titled: "We Are Fucked."
Much as I hate the NYT, I may be forced to acknowledge their existence again if they keep engaging in aberrant displays like finding and reporting the news.
