Does Dubya know what USAID is saying?

At least the US Agency for International Development isn't trying to understate the chaos that exists in Iraq. In their lastest request for contractors, USAID outlined what contractors would face:

an insurgency whose tactics include creating chaos in Iraq society as a whole and fomenting civil war.

Many of the attacks significantly damage the country's infrastructure and cause a tide of adverse economic and social effects that ripple across Iraq.
It is increasingly common for the tribesmen to `turn in' to the authorities enemies as insurgents, this as a form of tribal revenge

in the southern part of Iraq, which is dominated by Shiites, social liberties have been curtailed dramatically by roving bands of self-appointed religious-moral police.

groups such as al- Qaeda are gaining in number and notoriety as significant actors
criminal elements within Iraqi society have almost free rein

Baghdad is reportedly divided into zones controlled by organized criminal groups-clans

Freedom is on the march! Yeah...right.
