"Our findings suggest that the surge has had no observable effect, except insofar as it has helped to provide a seal of approval for a process of ethno-sectarian neighborhood homogenization that is now largely achieved."Science Daily, covering the report quotes its authors:
"By the launch of the surge, many of the targets of conflict had either been killed or fled the country, and they turned off the lights when they left."Pretty sad and horrible. And NPR? Seems like they like the lights off, too.
