Hadley is making the rounds today. For some reason his talking points were a little off in this exchange.

WALLACE: But, Mr. Hadley, with respect, I don’t think you answered my question. Was the vice president mistaken last May when he talked about an insurgency in its last throes, given the fact that almost 500 American troops have been killed since then?

HADLEY: The violence is continuing, as I said in my answer to the prior question. We have made clear we thought the violence was probably going to go up in this period.

An upswing in violence sure indicates to me that the insurgents are giving up.

Can you help us out?
