"We just got the last contingent of this, quote, surge over there in the last week or two. And I don't know if they will succeed or not, but I think we ought to give it a chance to succeed, and I'm not sure we will."
"All the rest are military, tactical suggestions, none of which answers the two-word question a responsible president must be able to answer: Then what? The surge -- then what? Cut troops -- then what? Move to a different posture -- then what?"
Samuel Jacobs
