For those that haven’t yet heard the good news? We’re winning in Iraq!
… we can win in Iraq, we are winning in Iraq, and George Bush’s surge strategy is responsible for it. Not even the AP can ignore it* anymore:
According to the AP:
The US military has captured the leaders of a car-bombing ring blamed for killing hundreds of Iraqis.
The news came as the departing US ambassador said Americans are in ongoing talks with insurgent representatives to try to persuade them to turn against al-Qaeda.
Jules Crittenden chimes in to remind us that the AP, who secretly wants the terrorists to win, is underplaying the victory:
The AP in this article grudgingly leaves out the kind of helpful interpretative graphs that usually are added to explain how Sunni bombings threaten Shiites, who no longer feel safe because the Mahdi Army bolted, and all of this threatens the fragile surge, blah blah blah.
If you think that means we’re winning, wait until you hear this! We killed Zarqawi! And Uday and Qusay were killed too! And Saddam was captured, tried and executed! And these were all turning points that showed we were winning! Just like capturing those car bombers is a turning point.
As luck would have it, you can always count on Michael Ware to spoil the party.
