“A nine o’clock on the evening of January 10, 2007, I [then-President George W. Bush] stepped before the cameras in the White House Library. ‘The situation in Iraq is unacceptable to the American people–and it is unacceptable to me,’ I said. ‘Our troops in Iraq have fought bravely. They have done everything we have asked them to do. Where mistakes have been made, the responsibility rests with me. It is clear that we need to change our strategy in Iraq…. So I’ve committed more than twenty thousand additional troops to Iraq. The vast majority of them–five brigades–will be deployed to Baghdad.’ “
