Susan's making a lot of sense
The new issue of Newsweek has this interview with Senator Susan Collins (R-Maine) that focuses on the Senate's consideration of anti-Iraq surge resolutions. At one point, Collins tells Newsweek:
"I pointed out (in hearings recently) that there have been four surges since the initial invasion, and they’ve been of similar sizes — one was like 30,000 troops around one of the elections. None of them produced a lasting change in the dynamic."
