The Surge

I'm in difficult blogging circumstances here, but I really want to recommend this article by Juan Cole, perhaps our greatest Iraq expert, about what a colossal disaster the Republicans' beloved surge was.

It also reveals what an incompetent idiot General Petraeus was, as an added benefit.

The Republicans are determined to blame their Iraq disaster on Hillary and Obama, so it is a good idea to keep the truth in mind.

It's well worth reading. Nouri al-Maliki was not only the wrong person to put in charge, but if anything he was playing Bush and Petraeus a lot more effectively than vice-versa.
