Repeat After Me - "The Surge is Working!"

Two reports in the news today brought to mind the new consensus - shared by both presidential nominees - that "the surge" in Iraq has "worked." The first relates direct evidence from Iraq and appears here in The Guardian. It turns out that the terrorists whom Bush and his minions invited into Iraq are alive and well, prospering one might say. The second, from The New York Times, relates evidence on the opportunity costs of having deployed troops to Iraq in an effort to shore up the disaster BushCo created. Afghanistan, the place the terrorists we allegedly are after actually inhabit, has descended into near total disaster. A job well done for the current Republican administration.
