Worse is better; up is down

The Pentagon is playing a shell game with the civilian death toll in Iraq.

According to the Associated Press, killings in Baghdad have declined since the start of the U.S. military surge, but the number of war-related deaths throughout the country as a whole is twice as high as a year ago.

The brass hats say the overall situation is better but offer no numbers to support their claim.
