The surge is working by making deals with the devil

It's well-documented that George Bush is so desperate to demonstrate progress in his "war on terror," that he'll ally himself with dictators (Pervez Musharaff), torturers (Syria), murdering mercenaries (Blackwater), and now killer militias.

For Bush and the Pentagon to take credit for a decline in violence as evidence that the surge is working, is to ignore the partition of neighborhoods, the incredible internal and external displacement of Iraqis, the cease-fire declared by Muqtahd al Sadr, and now the arming of Sunni militias.

This president has been lying for seven years. The sad fact is that many people still believe him.
