It’s been just over a year since MICHAEL E. O’HANLON and KENNETH M. POLLACK wrote their seminal OP-ED in the NY Times, A WAR WE JUST MIGHT WIN.
In September we will reach the anniversary of Democrats Hillary Clinton and Christopher Dodd voting against the Senate bill that condemned MoveOn.org for running a full page ad denouncing General Petraeus as a lying traitor “[refusing] to admit what everyone knows: Iraq is mired in an unwinnable religious civil war.”
July has just ended and we find an Iraq with violence at an all time low. The Iraqi army is standing up, Al Qaeda has fled the battlefield, the Iraqi government has met 15 of 18 benchmarks and U.S. troops have suffered fewest casualties since the war began. And as far as I know the only two people who still have doubts about the surges efficacy are Democrat Nancy Pelosi and Senator Obama. And yet still no apology from MoveOn.org to our General.
By the way, how did Obama vote on the resolution to condemn MoveOn.org? Well, the courageous fellow managed a way not to vote at all.
