Three years after Bush declared "Mission Accomplished" in Iraq, the American people have a different perception:
Three years after President Bush declared major combat over in Iraq, Americans have strong doubts that the United States will fulfill the promise of his "Mission Accomplished" backdrop, a poll released Monday found.
The CNN poll, conducted April 21-23 by Opinion Research Corporation, found that only 9 percent thought the U.S. mission in Iraq had been accomplished, while 40 percent believed it would be complete someday.
An additional 44 percent said the United States would never accomplish its goals in Iraq, where American troops are still battling insurgents three years after the invasion that toppled former Iraqi leader Saddam Hussein.
So only 9% of the people feel Bush told the truth on that highly expensive political stunt of flying onto an aircraft carrier. Glad he was so willing to quickly help spend our over abundance of money we have in this nation.
