The Surge is Succeeding Everywhere But in Baghdad

Via TPMmuckraker, it's becoming clear that in September we will be told that the effectiveness of the surge can be ascertained by it's success everywhere but in Baghdad. You will recall that in this Washington Post article, written by the purported architects of the surge, the original goal was somewhat different:

Success in Iraq today requires a well-thought-out military operation aimed at bringing security to the people of Baghdad as quickly as possible -- a traditional counterinsurgency mission.

Comment is hardly necessary.
