The Weekly Standard (while offering some interesting analysis on its implications) posts a video of a CNN interview with Sen. Durbin and Sen. Casey in which both say that the "surge" in Iraq demonstrates military progress (but express doubts about the political progress on the ground). In this video, Sen. Durbin says that the "surge" has troops going into areas where they haven't operated for years--and rounding up al Qaeda. Could this be a signal of a shift in Democratic policy for Iraq?
