Red-Letter Day for the Post


There’s a good editorial in the Washington Post today acknowledging the progress in Iraq represented by the new law on provincial elections. And check out the last lines:

Democrat Barack Obama continues to argue that only the systematic withdrawal of U.S. combat units will force Iraqi leaders to compromise. Yet the empirical evidence of the past year suggests the opposite: that only the greater security produced and guaranteed by American troops allows a political environment in which legislative deals and free elections are feasible.

Yes, that is the Post; I was surprised too.
