Reuters: Foreign Policy Experts Hate Surge

From the terrorists’ mouthpiece, Reuters:

U.S. foreign policy experts oppose surge

By David Morgan Mon Aug 20,

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – More than half of top U.S. foreign policy experts oppose President George W. Bush’s troop increase as a strategy for stabilizing Baghdad, saying the plan has harmed U.S. national security, according to a new survey.

As Congress and the White House await the September release of a key progress report on Iraq, 53 percent of the experts polled by Foreign Policy magazine and the Center for American Progress said they now oppose Bush’s troop build-up.

That is a 22 percentage point jump since the strategy was announced early this year.

The survey of 108 experts, including Republicans and Democrats, showed opposition to the so-called “surge” across the political spectrum, with about two-thirds of conservatives saying it has been ineffective or made things worse in Iraq.

Foreign Policy, published by the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace, said the experts polled on May 23 to June 26 included former government officials in senior positions including secretary of state, White House national security adviser and top military commanders.

The findings were published in the form of a Terrorism Index in the magazine’s September/October issue, to be released on Monday. The magazine published similar indices in July 2006 and in February…

Democrats and some Republicans in Congress say it is time to begin bringing troops home.

Foreign Policy said seven of 10 experts supported the redeployment of U.S. forces from Iraq. Experts have increasingly cited the war as the root cause of what they believe to be U.S. failure to win in its war on terrorism.

Ninety-one percent of those polled said the world has grown more dangerous for Americans and the United States, up 10 percent from February.

More than 80 percent of the experts said they expected another September 11-scale attack on the United States over the next decade, despite what they described as significant improvements among U.S. security, law enforcement and intelligence agencies…

Only 3 percent believed the United States will achieve its goal of rebuilding Iraq into a beacon of democracy within the next 10 years.

The hell you say?

Unnamed “experts” from the America-hating, lunatic left Carnegie Endowment For International Peace and the Soros-funded, Clinton-run Center for American Progress think the “surge” is doing more harm than good?

What a shock. Well, then I guess we should stop it then.

Lest we forget the Carnegie Endowment For International Peace was once headed by that great American hero, Alger Hiss. And they have moved more left ever since.

And just to give you an idea of their unbiased outlook, here are some more expert insights from the Center For American Progress:

It is a disgrace that Reuters should pretend that the opinings of these leftwing lunatics is any way significant.

But Reuters is in the propaganda business, not the news business.
