Correspondence: Assessing the Synergy Thesis
We welcome the opportunity to respond to Jon Lindsay and Austin Long’s and John Hagan, Joshua Kaiser, and Anna Hansen’s comments on “Testing the Surge”. Our critics disagree not only with us, but also with each other: Lindsay and Long argue that we understate the Sunni Awakening’s importance; Hagan et al. think we exaggerate it. In fact, we got it about right.
