This from 60 minutes
The Bush Administration is concealing the level of violence against troops in Iraq and the situation there is growing worse despite White House and Pentagon claims of progress, journalist Bob Woodward said in advance of his new book. Insurgent attacks against US-led forces in Iraq occurred, on average, every 15 minutes, he said in a 60 Minutes interview to be broadcast on Monday. "It's getting to the point now where there are 800-900 attacks a week. That's more than a hundred a day," he said in excerpts of the interview released yesterday before the release of his book on the administration, State of Denial. "The assessment by intelligence experts is that next year, 2007, is going to get worse and, in public, you have the president and you have the Pentagon [saying] 'Oh, no, things are going to get better,"' Woodward added.
