Has the US Defeated al Qaeda in Iraq?

Hosted by

The US military believes that it has dealt devastating and perhaps irreversible blows to al Qaeda in Iraq in recent months, leading some generals to advocate a declaration of victory over that group. That’s according to today's Washington Post. But the paper also reports that other officials see a declaration of that kind as premature. The story was written by Thomas Ricks.
