Blowing my own horn again

The New Yorker, July 2008: "Iraq, despite myriad crises, has begun to stabilize.... The improved conditions can be attributed, in increasing order of importance, to President Bush’s surge, the change in military strategy under General David Petraeus, the turning of Sunni tribes against Al Qaeda, the Sadr militia’s unilateral ceasefire, and the great historical luck that brought them all together at the same moment. With the level of violence down, the Iraqi government and Army have begun to show signs of functioning in less sectarian ways."

Me, July 2007: "My expectation is that a year from now, the media will no longer be able to hide the fact that things are going well in Iraq."

Just sayin'...
