Imperial Good News from Iraq Roundup

Via Yahoo News:

BAGHDAD (Reuters) - Forty senior al Qaeda in Iraq members were either captured or killed in November, including a senior adviser to the Sunni Islamist group's leader, the U.S. military said on Tuesday.

Violence levels in Iraq have fallen to their lowest levels since January 2006 after a security crackdown, which included a deployment of an extra 30,000 U.S. troops, targeting al Qaeda and Shi'ite militias across the country.

Wow, two media cells! I've noted that when media cells are broken up al-Qaeda releases whatever they have on hand to try and offset the perception they are losing. Over the weekend al-Qaeda in Iraq released a speech they claim is the sock puppet abu Omar al-Baghdadi calling for al-Qeada to murder Iraqis who have rejected al-Qaeda.

ER uh good luck with that Mr. Sock Puppet. It's hard to mount an offensive when you are on the run and your legs are actually an arm.
