THE BEAR PATROL MUST BE WORKING LIKE A CHARM.

John Podhoretz:

"Is the surge in Iraq working? Consider this plain, simple and overwhelmingly powerful fact: Hundreds and hundreds of Iraqis are alive today, on Oct. 2, who'd be dead by now if there had been no surge.

There were 1,975 Iraqi civilian fatalities in August. In September, the number fell to 922 - a drop of 53 percent.

How do we know this decline is due to the surge? We can't know for certain, of course."

Wow, this is like the easiest blog post I've ever written.
