    The Benefits of Ethnic Cleansing

    Note the following exchange that occurred when ABC's Terry Moran interviewed Sen. Obama :
    Moran asked what Iraq would look like now if Obama's policy of withdrawing in the face of the violence had been implemented.

    "That is a hard thing to speculate," Obama said, "The Sunnis might have made the same decisions at that time. The Shii’as might have made some similar decisions based on political calculation. There was ethnic cleansing in Baghdad that actually took the violence level down. And so, as I said before. Nobody has a crystal ball. If we did you just hire the guy with the crystal ball."
    I haven't seen the original transcript, so this is coming via Jake Tapper of ABC blogs Political Punch.

    Is the senator really going this far out of his way to avoid saying the surge was a success that he wants to credit ethnic cleansing for a 90% reduction in violence?
