Petraeus says withdrawing a brigade a month is "doable"
Posted by Max Bergmann

After Lindsay Graham spends a significant portion of his time saying that the surge had achieved great success and highlighting all the progress that has been achieved – he gets caught in a massive contradiction.

Graham asked Petraeus what would happen if we withdrew a brigade a month. The goal of the questioning was no doubt to get Petraeus to say it would be a disaster. But Petraeus went the other way, responding that, “If conditions were good it would be doable.” So if things are going so well as McCain, Graham, and Lieberman say, then isn’t it “doable,” as Petraeus says to begin withdrawing.

This is where there “surge” cheerleading runs into a lot of trouble for them. If things are going so well then we should be able to begin the process of withdrawing our forces. But they say we can’t – not yet, because... The logic eats itself.
