Most mind-blowing, disgusting quote ever from General Petraeus…

…regarding the entry of foreign fighters into Iraq.
"We do know the foreign fighter flow into Iraq has been reduced very substantially," he said. From a peak of 80 to 100 foreign fighters entering Iraq each month, the total has dropped as low as 20 per month, he said.
Is he telling us that it has been the efforts of fewer than 1.200 foreign fighters, now down to about 240 a year, that has bogged America down in a war we cannot win and forcing us to spend hundreds of billions of dollars in this stupid war? That these foreign fighters, in such small numbers, have stymied the efforts of the formerly most powerful armed forces on the planet?

We may be in more trouble than we thought.

Nice catch Bill! I saw that statement and never even thought to run the math. Excellent work!
