Even the mainstream media is starting to catch on. Could it be that President Bush was right?Could it be that what seemed like stubborness was actually courage, patience, and prudence in the face of popular unrest and impatience? Could it be that history will judge President George W. Bush to have been a steady leader in the fight against al-Qaeda and in the quest to stabilize the Middle East? Perhaps I’m getting ahead of myself, but the fact that one can even begin to ask such questions is remarkable considering the past criticism of the Administration.

Everyone was skeptical of the surge, but there is no denying now its positive impact on the ground in Iraq. America has done its part; it’s up to the Iraqis to seal the deal with political reconciliation and compromise.
