McCain’s Confusion On Iraq

Steve Chapman has written a great column entitled “McCain’s Confusion On Iraq” which not only deconstructs some of the McCain campaign’s latest critiques of Barack Obama’s position on the Iraq, but also points out how the so-called success of the “surge” isn’t all its cracked up to be:

The troop escalation has not been the complete failure Obama suggested it would be, but it has fallen far short of the triumph claimed by Republicans. The level of violence, though down from the very worst months of the war, remains at levels comparable to 2005 — which were considered awful at the time.
