UPDATE! – In her latest diary, Anne Strieber writes: “Lately there’s been a great controversy about whether ‘the surge’?which sent 28,000 more troops into Iraq a year ago?has ‘worked’ or not, with the US military and John McCain saying yes, it’s been effective and critics of the war saying no, it hasn’t been. But to me the whole question is a matter of words and is thus completely meaningless.”
