I thought it would be fun to review just what President Bush said in his January 2007 speech which announced the escalation. As it turns out none of the promises for decreased violence and increased Iraqi cooperation has been done. I have Matt Matten local Asheville Talk show host on WWNC. Surprisingly refreshing interview. I then follow up with my favorite Middle East expert, Brain Katulis from the Center for American Progress. We discuss the progress or lack of progress in Iraq.
