From Here:
Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC), returning from a visit this week to Iraq along with his pro-escalation partner Sen. John McCain (R-AZ), offered the following assessment of the situation in Iraq:

“The military part of the surge is working beyond my expectations,” Graham said. “We literally have the enemy on the run. The Sunni part of Iraq has really rejected al-Qaida all over the country. We’re getting more information about al-Qaida operations than we’ve ever received.”

Isn't the purpose of the surge to help stem the insurgent violence? In other words, the fact that Sunnis in Iraq are rejecting al-Qaida isn't really proof of anything. Iraqi Sunnis didn't support al-Qaida before we even started this stupid war. Are Sunnis still attacking Shia in Iraq? Then we still have a problem. If only these dipshits would stop constantly falling back on their talking points from 2002 maybe someone in Washington would realize that the problem in Iraq isn't really an al-Qaida problem, it's an Iraqi problem. Until Iraqis begin to work together, Iraq will not be a true sovereign nation again. Until the Iraqi government figures out how to work together with Kurds, Sunnis and Shias to form unified policies, people are going to keep dying.
