How's the Surge Going? (May 07)

O'Reilly says Iraq is going better. Other cons are saying we can't know anything until September. Look at the numbers yourself and decide.

It's probably comforting to Fox viewers that Bill O'Reilly thinks things are going better external link.

However the numbers say different. (not that this ever stopped Bill O'Reilly from making stuff up.)



The other line we're hearing from the right is "we can't know anything until September." external link

You don't need a PHD in statistics to look that the numbers and make an educated guess of what the September statistics will tell us: not much.

Not much, except to confirm that Bush and Rumsfeld put in enough troops to trigger a sectarian civil war but stubbornly refused to put in enough troops to quell it

Bush's "mini surge" is too little, too late.
