The war ain't over and the surge didn't work

So says Thomas Ricks, a war correspondent with The Washington Post, and author of Fiasco: The American Military Adventure in Iraq and The Gamble, a book about the surge.

He says that the surge worked militarily, and that there is less violence in Iraq, but that it failed politically, causing more division and making Iraquis more sectarian.

Most depressingly, Ricks says the war is maybe only half over.
