No amount of effort will buff this out, Georgie.

Now outside of government, members of the George W. Bush administration are desperate to polish their turbulent legacy. However, a history of "Operation Enduring Freedom" being prepared by the Army would seem to contradict their version of the war on Afghanistan.

Contrary to repeated claims that the Iraq war did not deprive Afghan forces of necessary resources, the Army's history shows that the Bush administration "hamstrung" forces in the country, according to The New York Times.

"A Different Kind of War," to be published later this year, was written by seven historians at the Army's Combat Studies Institute. It is the first report of its kind, giving an official stamp on events which transpired between October 2001 and September 2005. The Times obtained the 400-page manuscript and posted it online.
