I'm grateful for the relative success of the Surge and its associated changes in strategy. So, why didn't this happen sooner? According to former Gen. McCaffrey, it couldn't happen until Bush was finally convinced of the need of a new strategy and Rumsfeld and his poor judgement left the Pentagon. You can read a similar argument here. Before the Surge, some could argue that the Bush administration was doing a good job in a bad situation. They should stop bothering now. It's not plausible that the Surge and improved security in Iraq merely coincided.
