It’s hair splitting, but I’m trying to be nice to the queen of blonde stereotypes:

You said that the war was ended in Iraq. You said al-Qaeda was decimated.

The word decimated is regularly misused to mean “completely destroyed.” Decimated, as the Romans coined the term, meant “every tenth man”, or losing 10%. That’s probably about right, so congratulations to the president for finally saying something true, and for Mika bringing attention to the complete lie that operations were finished in Iraq, if even by misstep.
