The first day after my honeymoon, I tried to read as many analyses of the surge's results as I could find. None came close to being as good as Hilzoy's elegant, brief and devastatingly logical post on this blog last week. Here it is again. I cannot improve on it. If you have a solid argument against any of Hilary's points, let me know. She's not being partisan. She's making arguments I have yet to hear persuasively refuted. If you missed it, do yourself a favor.
