The only "surge" that's working is one that has resulted in obscene oil company profits, as well as a big bulge in the coffers of military contractors like Halliburton. The kind of denial that comes from the mouths of generals, and other Bush-dupes, is one that even Houdini couldn't pull off.
As his testimony to Congress approaches, consider for a moment how closely Petraeus comes to sounding like "betray us."
(btw, I wrote this piece Sunday afternoon before the full page Move.On ad came out, in today's New York Times, calling the general "betray-us." great minds think alike, and sink alike, too; I might add.)
