- A year after the American troop surge in Iraq began, its success is clear, even to Newsweek, the Washington Post, and Rep. John Murtha.

The Democrats and the Iraq battle
I've pointed out before that the Democrats have married up to defeat in the war against Al Qaeda when it comes to the battle in Iraq. I thought that sometime after Petraeus came back last September and reported about the progress of the strategy he employed for 2007 they'd have to shift their stance to something supportive. For some reason, they haven't. More on that from Fred Schwarz over at National Review Online in his Will Vietnam Cost the Democrats the White House -- Again?
