Of course they fail to mention that Al-Qaeda in Iraq represents a total membership
from 850 – about 3 to 5 percent of the Sunni insurgency – to several thousand
Of course, when you read Pentagon press releases, or listen to the US media, just about everything that happens and everything we do involves Al-Qaeda in Iraq. Now we are expected to believe that in an insurgency of upwards of 100,000, weakening a single group that represents a few single percentage points of the total revolt, is a success.
Just more absurd spin from a desperate and dysfunctional administration and it's overly compliant military.
