Al Qaeda's Iraq problem

From Pat Dollard is Foreign Fighters Fleeing Iraq
  • A growing number of foreign fighters are leaving or attempting to flee Iraq as U.S. and Iraqi forces have weakened al-Qaeda and forced its members from former strongholds, U.S. military officials say.

    The trend reflects a broad disenchantment among foreign fighters, particularly since al-Qaeda has lost sanctuaries in parts of Baghdad and Anbar, a Sunni province west of the capital, U.S. military intelligence officials say.

Clinton and Obama aren't the only ones wanting us out of Iraq.
