More bad news out of Iraq...

...bad for democrats that is. Sounds pretty political and they're using the dreaded "R" word here -- reconciliation.

The Sheiks Conference Center’s grand opening took place Oct. 18 near Taji, with sheiks of many tribes, Iraqi Police, Army, security volunteers, government representatives and troops of the 1st “Ironhorse” Brigade Combat Team, 1st Cavalry Division, gathering with one common goal – reconciliation.

“The gathering is immense,” said Lt. Col. Kevin MacWatters, commander, 1st Squadron 7th Cavalry Regiment, 1st BCT, 1st Cav. Div. “It’s another progressive step.”

During the grand opening ceremony, Sunni and Shia greeted, sat together, conversed and feasted. For many this was the first time they had ever done so. These simple acts symbolized their strong desire for unity.

Prior to reconciliation efforts, the Ironhorse Brigade’s main focus during its deployment was security; however, as a result of the recent unions, security has improved in the brigade’s area of operations thanks to the joint efforts of the Iraqis and Ironhorse Soldiers.

Continued reconciliation efforts will allow the Ironhorse Brigade to shift its focus from security to helping Iraqis with essential services, rebuilding and assisting local governments...

When approached for comment, Harry Reid was seen thrashing on the floor foaming at the mouth and mumbling something about alien nematodes eating his brain.

In other bad news, an 11 man AQ cell responsible for IED's was rolled up too.
