That Word Does Not Mean What You Think It Means

THAT WORD DOES NOT MEAN WHAT YOU THINK IT MEANS....From the "Concluding Observations" section of the Jones commission report released today:
Perceptions and reality are frequently at odds with each other when trying to understand Iraq's problems and progress. Nowhere is this more apparent than in the impressions drawn from seeing our massive logistics "footprint," our many installations, and the number of personnel (military and civilian), especially in and around the Baghdad region. The unintended message conveyed is one of "permanence," an occupying force, as it were.
Unintended? Huh?
