Those Who Think Before They Speak...

...just might see that things are not what they thought.

Here's an interesting article that looks at the planned "surge" in Iraq. Has it already produced some results- even before it happens?

Maybe... actually, probably.

Jack Kelly lists three "interesting" things that are occuring in Iraq. Here is the first:

[[ Three interesting things have happened since President Bush announced plans to "surge" U.S. troops.

First, al Qaida appears to be retreating from Baghdad. A military intelligence officer has confirmed to Richard Miniter, editor of Pajamas Media, a report in the Iraqi newspaper al Sabah that Abu Ayyub al Masri, the head of al Qaida in Iraq, has ordered a withdrawal to Diyala province, north and east of Baghdad.

Mr. al Masri's evacuation order said that remaining in Baghdad is a no-win situation for al Qaida, because the Fallujah campaign demonstrating the Americans have learned how to prevail in house to house fighting, Mr. Miniter said.

"In more than 10 years of reading al Qaida intercepts, I've never seen (pessimistic) language like this," he quoted his intelligence officer source as saying.

Now, please go and read the rest, so that you will have a better view of this extremely important issue. Okay? Okay... now go!

Is the Surge Already Producing Results?
