Thomas Ricks talks about the surge in IRAQ including a meeting with Gen Petraeus where he sings R-E-S-P-E-C-T for the insurgents along with paying them (without telling W) brought IRAQ to the relative calm that it is now.
Also the last line in his book is something like --The things that will be remembered most in IRAQ haven't happened yet.

Interesting interview.

I love The Daily Show. Stewart can be a very good interviewer when he wants to.

And yes, people say "the surge" without really understanding the whole thing. A huge piece of what was effective was a complete rejection of Bush's simplistic nostrums. like negotiating with terrorists.
