2 Million Iraqis Forced to Flee Their Homes

Obviously no in the administration figured out before the surge that it would increase the number of refugees. Or maybe they just don't care. You can't make omelets without breaking eggs, Bush would argue:
Nearly two million Iraqis have become refugees in their own land in the past year, redrawing the ethnic and sectarian map of Baghdad and other cities, a report by the Iraqi Red Crescent said yesterday.

In Baghdad alone, nearly a million people have fled their homes.

Last month saw the sharpest rise so far in the numbers of Iraqis forced to abandon their homes - 71.1%.

The forced migration raises questions about claims from the Bush administration that the civilian protection plan at the core of its war strategy is making Iraq safer for Iraqis.
