Al Qaeda's defeat in Iraq

Accoring to a report in Fox News:
The U.S. ambassador to Iraq said Saturday that Al Qaeda's network in the country has never been closer to defeat, and he praised Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki for his moves to rein in Shiite and Sunni militant groups.

Ryan Crocker's comments came as Iraqi forces have been conducting crackdowns on Al Qaeda militants in the northern city of Mosul and on Shiite militiamen in the southern city of Basra. Thousands of Iraqi forces also moved into the Shiite militia stronghold of Sadr City in Baghdad last week imposing control for the first time in years.

This is certainly good news for Iraqi's but bad news for Democrats who have been trying desparately to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory ever since the last election. In fact, one of Barack Obama's primary goals is to pull out of Iraq immediately before we ensure Iraq's stability.
