Murtha: The Surge Is Working

If Jack Murtha is finally willing to admit it

House Republican Whip Roy Blunt made the following statement today in response to Murtha’s comments:

With one of the Democrats’ leading war critics now saying the surge in Iraq is working, it’s difficult to understand why the majority continues to push an irresponsible withdrawal plan that jeopardizes critical support funding for our troops. It can’t be the facts on the ground that are influencing their decision-making: After all, our servicemen and women have made tremendous progress the past six months, with fewer attacks on our troops, greater security in historically insecure areas, and terrorist insurgents on the run.
