ABSTRACT
This article looks at the different views on the success or lack of success in the Iraq War. The author isn't sure whose information should be believed. Is progress being made with defeating the terrorists and establishing a workable society and government in Iraq? The recent call for withdrawal of American troops was soundly defeated by the U.S. Congress. The author believes that President George W. Bush's predictions about success in Iraq will prove to be mostly accurate six months from now.
