Well, the battle in Fallujah began hitting the media hard in the week before the election, right on cue. Of course it was billed as the solution, the battle that â€“ if you just keep Bush in office â€“ will wipe out those insurgents and solve the problems over there. This was yet another obvious use of our nationâ€™s troops by President Bush as if they were campaign volunteers rather than non-partisan volunteers to defend our nation.
But Fallujah, it turns out, seems to be even more than that. Fallujah, in effect, was the get away car for an election heist.
