Surge somewhat successful

The New York Times reports:

“The circle of fear is broken,” said Shaker, owner of a floating restaurant on Basra’s famed Corniche promenade, who, although optimistic, was still afraid to give his full name, as were many of those interviewed.
But things are much better. Oddly, that seems to have escaped the front pages here, though the initial fighting didn't. Seems the Long War Journal was right, and the mainstream media wrong, again.
