You've probably heard it already, but Al Qaeda's #1 guy in Iraq hasn't been captured. The Iraqi's nabbed someone with a similar name.
Even without that though, The Sadrists are getting beaten badly and Mookie has tried to make peace again. The jury is still out, but it looks as if the ISF and coalition forces are continuing to thin the Mahdi army ranks. Mookie is becoming lesser and lesser as each day goes by.
