Bob Woodward At It Again

Bob Woodward has a reputation as one of the gresatest journalists in American history, yet his work is riddled with errors from his misunderstanding of Watergate on down. His latest gaffe concerns a "secret killing program" in Iraq, a program he compared to the Manhattan Project but which sounds presumably closer to a "Project Phoenix" for Iraq - Project Phoenix was a counterinsurgency program in Vietnam was eliminated the remaining elements of Vietcong infrastructure and is often condemned as an "assassination" program by people who refuse to understand what it actually did.

Well, one has reason to doubt Woodward's story.
