Who Lied? Murtha Better Get His facts Straight

Truck and Barter analyzes the various falsehoods made by Congressman Murtha. Here is one fact that the blog refutes:

Murtha writes in USAToday:

“unemployment remains at 60% and insurgent incidents have increased from 150 to more than 700 per week. Average monthly death rates of U.S. servicemembers have grown since the Abu Ghraib prison scandal from one per day to almost four.”

Looking at center-left Brookings Institutes Iraq Index we can see that most of Murthas statements about Iraq are grossly misleading.

Brookings has estimates of Iraqi unemployment at 27-40%, hardly 60%. Their data indicates a drop on unemployment from the earliest stated figure of 50-60% in June 2003, stabilizing at 27-40% in 2005.

There is a lot more Murtha lied about. Read more.
