Re-writing history: We never said storming Fallujah was going to be effective...

Old story: Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld said this week success in Falluja "will deal a blow to the terrorists in the country and should move Iraq further away from a future of violence to one of freedom and opportunity for the Iraqi people."

Then, wonder of wonders, all their high-value targets disappeared.

New story: "That's the nature of an insurgency, you know, where people can fight one minute and then blend into the surroundings the next minute," said Gen. Richard Myers, chairman of the U.S. military's Joint Chiefs of Staff.

"If anybody thinks that Falluja's going to be the end of the insurgency in Iraq, that was never the objective, never our intention and even never our hope," Myers told NBC's "Today Show."

And they never said there were WMDs, either.
