Palin Says U.S. Has Achieved Victory in Iraq

The U.S. military’s surge strategy has led to victory in Iraq, Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin said in her interview with CBS’s Katie Couric.

Palin said that a similar surge was needed in Afghanistan to achieve what she implied was a “victory” in Iraq.

“I believe that a surge in Afghanistan also will lead us to victory there as it has proven to have done in Iraq,” Palin said.

The Republican vice presidential candidate cited military leaders as having said the U.S. should “ramp it up” in Afghanistan during the second part of her interview with Couric, to be aired on tonight’s CBS Evening News.
