The Greatest Story Rarely Told

The "surge" of troops in Iraq combined with the hard work of our soldiers and Gen. David Petraeus brilliant military strategy is working. It has snatched potential victory from the jaws of a humiliating defeat.

It also has political consequences here at home.

It will be fascinating to see how history judges this war, even 10 years from now. But I have a strong feeling the screechers on anti-war left will not fare well.

UPDATE: The National Journal debunks a John Hopkins "study" published in a British medical journal meant to discredit the war effort. You can read more about it here.
Not only debunks, but reveals the political effort to get it published before the 2006 elections without peer review. Appalling.

CORRECTION: The study was commissioned MIT and done by a Columbia Unversity professor.

Virtually everyone connected with the study has been an outspoken opponent of U.S. actions in Iraq. Whether this affected the authors' scientific judgments and led them to turn a blind eye to flaws is up for debate.

Gee, ya think? Filthy Liberals in the Media and Academia lying to us… What else is new?
Such underhanded intentional distortion for political ends should be a chargable crime.
