This Is Victory?

McClatchy reports:
WASHINGTON — Two years ago, President Bush hailed Najim al Jabouri as a symbol of success in the battle to curb Iraq's sectarian violence. Today, Jabouri is a symbol of how uncertain that success is.

Last month, Jabouri quietly left Tal Afar, an ancient city near Iraq's desert border with Syria where he was the police chief and the mayor, collected his wife and four children and flew to safety in the United States.
Unfortunate, but at least the war was self-financing, right...?

And things are going great in Afghanistan, right?

And we showed Iran who's boss, right?
