During his commentary on this morning's Face The Nation, Bob Schieffer urges caution when talking about peace in the Middle East and President Bush's surge in Iraq. Schieffer notes that while violence is reported to have gone down, the goal of the surge--which was to give the Iraqi government space to come together and start functioning--has been a complete failure and that the current presidential candidates need to focus more on Iraq since that's where Americans are still dying.
