Broken Record Alert: The Surge Didn’t Work.

Andrew Sullivan, who’s not an expert in such matters but who is very adult about examining and reexamining his assumptions based on the evidence at hand, states it frankly:

“The surge only worked as a face-saving device to get out of Iraq. It never worked as it was designed to, to bring Iraq’s sects and factions together. It failed.”

I will continue to hammer this long after most people are sick of hearing about it because none of this was ever supposed to happen in the first place. We were supposed to have learned from Vietnam, and people who supported the invasion in 2003 need a lot of time in front of the mirror to think about what they did.
