A Week with No US Troop Deaths In Iraq

From Heavy Handed Politics blog and Jeremiah Films:
On July 16, Andrew Malcolm at the Los Angeles Times's Top of the Ticket Blog wrote the following:When President Bush ordered the surge in January 2007, (Barack) Obama said: "I am not persuaded that 20,000 additional troops in Iraq is going to solve the sectarian violence there. In fact, I think it will do the reverse," a position he maintained throughout 2007. This year he acknowledged progress, but maintained his position that political progress was lacking.The LAT Blog notes earlier in its entry that "The parts (of Obama's web site) that stressed his opposition to the 2007 troop surge and his statement that more troops would make no difference in a civil war have somehow disappeared."
