Is sure set low (BoldColorConservative)
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif) has again called the Iraq surge “a failure.” Pelosi needs to read a letter written by an al Qaeda in Iraq leader Abu-Tariq to top terror leaders proclaiming the organization to be in “extraordinary crisis,” and how the the defection of Sunnis to fight with the U.S. military has “created panic, fear, and the unwillingness to fight.”How is that not, as Pelosi claims, “the desired effect?”
Perhaps in 10 years when our soldiers are still in Iraq fighting insurgents, and the civil war is still raging with people being murdered every day, it will occur to conservatives that maybe the “desired effect” is peace and security for the Iraqi people. Perhaps in 10 years conservatives will learn to read the articles they link to:
“The purpose of the surge was to create a secure time for the government of Iraq to make the political change to bring reconciliation to Iraq,” Pelosi said on CNN’s “Late Edition.” “They have not done that.”
How low the bar has been set! Apparently the point of the surge was to get insurgent leaders to feel insecure about their organizations. If only Pelosi had read the letter!
