The Surge Is Working!

Hey, look who's back (hint: it's me)! I'll have more thoughts on this Iraq business before I head to bed, but first this MSNBC video from Monday is a solid look at where things stand in Iraq now. In the second, debate-oriented part of the video, it is almost sad how the guy from the conservative Vets For Freedom organization's talking points get smacked down so easily. Facts are pesky things.

(The BBC on Monday also had an excellent report on the Maliki-Sadr battle for Iraq)

Finally, some recommending reading on this subject on this subject...

The Guardian: Secret US plan for military future in Iraq-- Document outlines powers but sets no time limit on troop presence

Salon: The Iran boogeyman is back-- Gen. Petraeus is reportedly going to blame Iran for why we need to stay in Iraq. If he does, it'll be destructive propaganda.

Think Progress: McCain repeats false claim ‘Sadr declared the ceasefire.’

Think Progress: Tony Snow: The ‘Bad Guys Backed Down’ In Basra ‘Because They Were Getting Crushed’
