Has The Surge Worked?

To the chagrin of liberals worldwide, the answer would be “yes.” CNS News: IED-Caused Casualties in Iraq Down 89 Percent Since Surge

 Deploying more U.S. troops in Iraq has resulted in a dramatic decline in the number of U.S. troops being killed by improvised explosive devices (IEDs) in that country.

IED-caused casualties have dropped 89 percent since the surge went full force last June, according to a Cybercast News Service database of Iraq casualties.

IED-caused casualties spiked in the early part of last year as the surge began. In January 2007, the U.S. started deploying an additional 30,000 troops to the country. The surge in forces was completed in mid-June.

Hmm, and which candidate was pushing hard for The Surge even before The Surge was announced?

Which one wants to leave Iraq with a fully completed post war mission, and which one wants to leave before the job is done?
