Meanwhile in Iraq...

Pilgrim at SayAnything sums it up, U.S. And Iraqis Continue To Beat Al-Qaeda Like A Drum. The Washington Post probably didn't run this news on the front page.

U.S. and Iraqi forces have killed 60 militants, seized dozens of weapons caches and detained 193 suspects during the first week of a major offensive against al Qaeda in northern Iraq, the U.S. military said.

The military said one of the weapons caches had been found in an underground bunker complex with several rooms in volatile Diyala province north of Baghdad, a religiously mixed area that is a hotbed of al Qaeda activity.
