How's the Surge Going? (May 07)

Bush says the surge is working. The numbers say otherwise.

Is Bush deluded or just a shameless spinner?
Bush: Sectarian Killings Drop in Baghdad

Bush said Friday that sectarian murders have dropped by half in Baghdad since the U.S.-Iraqi military buildup began in February, rejecting a Democratic leader's claim that the war is lost. The president said early signs show the operation to quell violence is meeting expectations.

"There are still horrific attacks in Iraq, such as the bombings in Baghdad on Wednesday, but the direction of the fight is beginning to shift," Bush said in his second speech on terrorism in two days.

I have no idea if Bush is lying or not. If not, it mostly means that the militants have moved away from the "surge." Who didn't see that coming?
