Military Says Surge Has Failed So Far


by Steve

After a weekend when June started out with 14 more dead Americans in Iraq, we learn today that our military says the surge is failing so far and we control less than a third of Baghdad, far short of our goal. Go figure.

But fear not; after capitulating to Bush and voting en masse for funding with no strings last month, Democrats now say they have a plan in the coming months to split the GOP from Bush on the war. Message to Carl Levin, John Murtha, Joe Biden, and all the committee chairs who voted “yes” on the no-strings funding bill: when you voted with Bush last month for an auto-pilot war, you now own it as well. So shut the FU. You no longer have any leg to stand on. It’s your war now too.
