Democrats Praise Military Progress

As reported by the AP via Breitbart:

One senator said U.S. troops are routing out al-Qaida in parts
of Iraq. Another insisted President Bush's plan to increase troops has caused
tactical momentum. One even went so far on Wednesday as to say the argument
could be made that U.S. troops are winning.
These are not Bush-backing GOP
die-hards, but Democratic Sens. Dick Durbin, Bob Casey and Jack Reed. Even Sen.
Carl Levin, chairman of the Senate Armed Services committee, said progress was
being made by soldiers...

After visiting Iraq last month and visiting with Petraeus,
McNerney said signs of progress led him to decide he'll be a little more
flexible about when troops should be brought home.
"I'm more willing to work
with finding a way forward to accommodate what the generals are saying,"
McNerney said.

If you ask me this is real political progress! Wonder what the Dems will say when the Iraqi government eventually does stand up?
