Happy Thanksgiving: Baqubah Update

From Michael Yon - Happy Thanksgiving: Baqubah Update
  • Happy Thanksgiving from Iraq!

    I had the opportunity to spend Thanksgiving with General Petraeus. Very interesting series of helicopter flights to several bases. Bottom line is that progress is clear and real, but there are tough days ahead and al Qaeda, for instance, is far from dead. The mood is of cautious optimism, with a concern that some of the very positive media lately might set expectations too high. (That’s right: many military leaders are concerned that the media lately might be too positive.)
