In spite of the fact that I think Glenn Reynolds is a tad full of himself sometimes he has a good point here:
WITH MICHAEL YON REPORTING THAT "IRAQ IS VERY WINNABLE," Dean Barnett wonders what if the surge works?
I think it won't be allowed to work, at least in terms of media reporting and public perception, if the press has anything to say about it.
UPDATE: Or maybe some people who were for the surge before they were against it will be saying "I told you so" if it works! I can live with that eventuality, if it eventuates.
Will the press let the surge work? Will Iraq have to be Switzerland before the press cuts the Bushies any slack?
