More doublethink from DC

George Orwell coined the word, ‘doublethink’

Doublethink means the power of holding two contradictory beliefs in one’s mind simultaneously, and accepting both of them

Fittingly, this news report is from those masters of doublethink, FoxNews

Reports surfaced saying that the United States was ready to grant Iraqi independence by June of 2004.

The plan to speed up the transfer of power and give Iraqis control over their own wealth while maintaining the presence of coalition forces was proposed by the Iraqi leadership, a report in the New York Times said, adding it was approved by Washington this week.

This action is aimed at defusing growing attacks against coalition forces.

a) If US forces stay in Iraq, Iraq won’t really be independent, will it?

b) If US forces stay in Iraq, insurgents will continue to attack them, won’t they?
