Good News, Bad News

According to the news attacks on americans in Iraq are down about 50%. However the death rate hasn't gone down because the insurgents are apparently getting better.

In other Iraq news, apparently they found documents with Saddam in which he was instructing his cohorts not to cooperate with fundamental extremists and other foreigners in attacks on americans. However the military believes that many of the attacks are originated by al-queda types. So we invaded a country that was hostile to fundamental extremists, and ended up making it friendly towards them. I have the strange feeling that someone might have mentioned that possibility at some point, but that can't be.
