Good News in Iraq

To its credit, the Washington Post ran an editorial yesterday touting new numbers showing declining civilian deaths in Iraq, and today a front page story co-authored by Thomas Ricks reports that Al Qaeda in Iraq may be crippled. To be sure, everybody should view these developments with a degree of caution, because in the past positive developments have been short-lived, followed by a sudden spike in violence.
