Al-Qaeda In Iraq Reported Crippled

Regardless of how badly Al Qaeda in Iraq is hurt they remain very dangerous, it would be a mistake to underestimate them and their ability to inflict large numbers of casualties on US Forces and Iraqi civilians.   

From the Washington Post 

The U.S. military believes it has dealt devastating and perhaps irreversible blows to al-Qaeda in in recent months, leading some generals to advocate a declaration of victory over the group, which the Bush administration has long described as the most lethal U.S. adversary in.

But as the White House and its military commanders plan the next phase of the war, other officials have cautioned against taking what they see as a premature step that could create strategic and political difficulties for the United States. Such a declaration could fuel criticism that the Iraq conflict has become a civil war in which U.S. combat forces should not be involved. At the same time, the intelligence community, and some in the military itself, worry about underestimating an enemy that has shown great resilience in the past.

That is important because that means it is buried. Yes, political junkies will find it but the majority of people will not, and so most people will not hear of this report. This is the M.O. of the Post. They have done this before. I chronicled it here…
