Fire of Liberty
Here's a good piece by Rowan Scarborough in the Examiner(D.C.) which notes that our soldiers in Iraq discovered and destroyed and enormous three building IED factory in Mosul. While this is just the destruction of one of the many IED factories in Iraq, it just shows you that are soldiers and their commanders are slowly but surely closing in on the terrorists and their horrific weapons. I just hope that the Senate will give our military ample time to continue this effective counterinsurgency work thus preventing us from snatching victory from the jaws of defeat.
*Based on this piece by Eli Lake in the NY Sun, it looks like the intellectual architects of the surge and the soldiers/commanders in the field are concerned that the folks in D.C. will cut off their legs as Generals Petraeus and Odierno begin to execute an effective counterinsurgency in Iraq.
