Washington Times editorial: The surge worked


It may not be “Mission accomplished,” but we are getting closer. Yesterday, the United States completed the process of withdrawing from Iraq’s cities. American forces closed or turned over to Iraqi authorities 150 bases and facilities. The Iraqis are happy to see us go, and we are glad to be leaving.

The pullout is more proof of the effectiveness of the surge strategy adopted in early 2007 over vociferous Democratic objections, particularly from then-Sen. Barack Obama and then-Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton, who now ironically direct our foreign policy.
