Even An *Insurgent* Disagrees With Harry Reid's Policy Of Withdrawal And Surrender

Apparently they're not convinced by George Voinobitch's arguments.

Oh, they want us to leave, of course. But when? According to a leader of the 1920s Brigades fighting alongside Americans and IA units against Al Qaeda:

"I ask one thing,” and now I paraphrase Ali’s words: “After the Iraqi Army and Police take hold and the security forces are ready, we want a schedule for the leaving of the American forces.”

Another good dispatch from Michael Yon, well worth reading.

The AP meanwhile managed to devote an entire two sentences to the Baquba slaughter.

JD Johannes Vs. Gleen Grenwald: Not exactly a fair match, is it?

Regarding Greenwald's insistence that there is no cooperation by insurgents with coalition forces to root out Al Qaeda -- all of his sources at the Rio de Janeiro gay disco circuit are quite firm on this point -- Johannes answers:

What I really learned today is the lengths many will go to deny the facts on the ground–when they have no knowledge of those facts–and the fear they have of success in Iraq.

To them the Anbar Awakening cannot be true, because if it is, the surge will be extended, the Petraeus plan will be implemented fully accross the country and the enterprise could prove successful.

And if the enterprise is successful, they were wrong. Their identities being so wrapped up in their opinions and belief that Iraq is and will be a failure, that their egos will not allow them to be wrong. Admission that they were wrong is tantamount to self-identity suicide.
