Today, and a year, in Iraq

There is an excellent paragraph-by-paragraph analysis at Today in Iraq of Bush's May 1, 2003 speech announcing the end of major combat operations in Iraq. The sheer quantity of lies and pure bullshit packed into this short speech is incredible. The analysis ends with a list of the dead American soldiers in Iraq. Blogs aren't big enough for a list of the 100,000 or 120,000 or so dead Iraqis, even if the Pentagon cared enough to keep a record of their names.
