Good News from Iraq?

Well you cannot be picky when it comes to "good news" about Iraq being reported by MSM. Read this article for yourself - There is "good news"; however, the writers do find some quotes to support the usual pessimistic opinion.

Al-Qaeda In Iraq Reported Crippled
The U.S. military believes it has dealt devastating and perhaps irreversible blows to al-Qaeda in Iraq 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 Iraq.
"AQI is definitely taking some hits," the official said. "There is definite progress, and that is undeniable good news. But what we don't know is how long it will last . . . and whether it's sustainable. . . . They have withstood withering pressure for a long period of time." Three months, he said, is not long enough to consider a trend sustainable.
