For the umpteenth time...the infamous carrier that Bush landed on was not calling the Iraq war an over and done "Mission Accomplished" moment....the military aboard the carrier were celebrating teh completion of THEIR specific mission which THEY had successfully accomplished!
"The banner stating "Mission Accomplished" was a focal point of controversy and criticism. Navy Commander and Pentagon spokesman Conrad Chun said the banner referred specifically to the aircraft carrier's 10-month deployment (which was the longest deployment of a carrier since the Vietnam War) and not the war itself, saying "It truly did signify a mission accomplished for the crew."

I have seen posts here on CM were women say "I'm so glad Obama brought the troops home and ended the war." They aren't even aware it's still going on and expanding in Afghanistan. I haven't seen anything about causality rates or the war on the news in weeks.
