Diary Reveals Al Qaeda's Decline

From the Small Wars Journal, continued success from the frontlines:

U.S. troops found a diary belonging to an al Qaeda in Iraq leader
that has Coalition forces believing the terrorist organization is “on its
heels,” a senior military official in Baghdad said this morning.
Soldiers of
the 101st Airborne Division’s 1st Brigade Combat Team on Nov. 3, 2007, captured
a diary belonging to Abu Tariq, an al Qaeda emir in control of five battalions
within two sectors, U.S. Air Force Col. Donald J. Bacon, a Multinational Force
Iraq spokesman, told online journalists and “bloggers” during a conference call.
The soldiers found the diary during a patrol conducted about 15 kilometers
south of Balad. Bacon said the 16-page diary contains records about man power,
operations, weapons, and finances, and it shows that al Qaeda is hurting badly
in the belts of Baghdad.

Now is not the time to go wobbly. Republicans especially need to heed the call for a strong leader determined to continue the fight against Osama Bin Laden and his terrorist minions. All other concerns are secondary.

Or you could just live in a dream land with Nancy Pelosi.
