Well, when politically necessary, the President has done a 180, changing his tune in regards to the surge.
Fox News Reports:
Do you believe that the President will admit that he was wrong or mistaken? Do you think the President will ignore the issue entirely? Or do you believe the President will spin this and try to make it seem like he supported the surge all along?
Gen. David Petraeus told “Fox News Sunday” that the president asked him how troops worked to secure the population and achieve cooperation with various Iraqi factions, and held several lengthy sessions to review how these principles could be applied in Afghanistan.
Petraeus said that while Obama acknowledged the success of the surge, "we've spent a lot of time taking the rear view mirrors off the bus and avoiding re-litigating, if you will, you know, past battles and all the rest of this, and focusing to the future."
