When I was in Baghdad two and a half years ago, it was unsafe for an American to go anwrheye near Haifa Street, even though it is a key shopping district. Those damned insurgents! Denying Americans our religious duty of shopping!So, for the past two and a half years, the level of violence has remained so high we need an esc sorry, SURGE to stop it. Who was in charge of our failed efforts during all of that time? Should we belive any tales of success they might now tell us? Why? It apparently is safe enough now for the Iraqi leadership to make a staged appearance, at least. I hope to learn soon that ordinary people–even American reporters–can travel about the city with a modicum of safety. So, staged visits by Iraqi leaders equate to having Americans walking around? I guess that means the Iraqi government is most certainly definitely positively absolutely not staged by Americans, right?
