Cooking the books

"When in the course of days we increase by thousands our estimate of the numbers of Iraqis trained, it sounds like somebody is cooking the books. When we do this as our forces are coming under increasing attack, we suggest to friends and allies alike that our ultimate goal in Iraq is leaving as soon as possible — not meeting our strategic objective of building a free and democratic country in the heart of the Arab world." -- Sen. John McCain (Thanks, Talking Points Memo)
