War predictions too low

SHARE War predictions too low

Your front-page headline (Tuesday, Jan. 25) reads "$80 billion more for war?" (bringing total expenditures so far to $280 billion). Six months ago when John Kerry said our war expenditures were nearing $200 billion, the Bush administration immediately and dramatically attacked his accounting and refuted his numbers. Were they saying his predictions were too low?
