The AP has confirmed today that the war in Iraq is being won. Their headline:
"Analysis: US now winning Iraq war that seemed lost"
Yes, it seemed lost to those willing to lose and those who hoped to lose. Not to those determined to win.
Not surprisingly the article mentions President Bush only to criticize his "Mission Accomplished" speech and never uses the word "surge". Apparently neither had much to do with the outcome.
Its nice to see the enemy, AP, finally surrender. They have been doing so much for so long to try to win the war for the bad guys.
It will be amusing to watch the reactions of the surrender caucus.
When will Hillary apologize for calling Petraeus a liar. Right, never.
When will Harry Reid take to the Senate floor and declare his 2007 and 2008 declarations of our loss to have been mistakes? Never.
When will John Kerry take to the Senate floor to declare his gas bag speeches of 2004, 2005, 2006, 2007 and 2008 to have been wrong? Never.
When will MoveOn.org take out a full page ad in the NYT to declare that their "General Betray Us" ad of 2007 was a mistake? Never.
These are the same people who demanded that President Bush own up to his mistakes. Hypocrites of the first order all.
Several commentators have pointed out that the AP story seems to coincide with Obama's trip to Iraq. Are they preparing the ground for a narrative that has Obama's visit turning the tide? I guess we'll see.
