Experts overlook Iraq's civilians

"Jonathan Finer reports in the Washington Post today that few fighters in Iraq's insurgency are foreign. He might be right. He quotes Anthony Cordesman who says that Iraqis and U.S. administration officials have been misreading the insurgency. That could be true, I have never claimed to be a military expert. But I will tell Cordesman that most Iraqi people hate the insurgents and do not see them as legitimate regardless of what passports they carry. They are viewed as ruthless killers. And, I can say that I am certain this part of Finer's story is rubbish:"
