An Al Qaida Diary Of Despair

A captured diary chronicles the decline and fall of Al Qaida in Anbar.

Over 16 pages, the al-Qaeda in Iraq leader detailed the organization's demise in his sector. He once had 600 men, but now his force was down to 20 or fewer, he wrote. They had lost weapons and allies. Abu Tariq focused his anger in particular on the Sunni fighters and tribesmen who have turned against al-Qaeda in Iraq and joined the U.S.-backed Sunni Sahwa, or "Awakening," forces.

Of course, Democrats would have willingly suspend disbelief to believe that we might actually win.
