Secondly, for all the harping the left does about political solutions not coming about in Iraq, maybe they didn't notice this massively important tidbit of information:
Iraq's Shiite-dominated government has agreed to take over support of a U.S.-funded plan that has organized thousands of Iraqis — including former insurgents and their sympathizers — into local security groups.
The move is a long-awaited step toward national reconciliation, said Saad al-Muttalibi, an official at Iraq's Ministry of National Dialogue and Reconciliation.
The Shiites are now assimilating the Sunnis into the national security force. Hmmm....sounds like a political solution to me, the first step along the way to the nation of Iraq coming together and standing up for itself, and all due to the success of the Surge. The same Surge Harry Reid said had already failed before it even started. So how does the Left and Harry Reid meet this news, by completely burying it and trying to, you guessed it, pathetically attempt to move the goalposts once again by suddenly, in lack of any evidence or any logic, saying that al-Qaeda in Iraq is regrouping. Though I'm sure they are regrouping in hell, after being routed to pieces during the Surge, they are not regrouping in Iraq. A few incidents of violence an ol' Harry Reid tries to cover up the most important news to come out of Iraq in sometime. It's no secret the Democrats futures lie in Iraq's demise at the cost of the lives of numerous American and Iraqi lives, just so they can win a few more votes. Utterly pathetic, and traitorous, and yes, sadly transparent.
