Not the Surge

A diary by Brandon Friedman over at Kos points out that it is not the surge that reduced American deaths in Iraq in September and October but the fact the the Sadr army has called a halt to fighting. They were the force behind over half of the violence in Iraq especially the IEDs. Despite what the right wing blogs or the conservative pundits say it is not the surge that is reducing violence but the fact that the folks behind more than half the attacks on American forces have quit fighting.

You will notice that this "minor" detail is not mentioned in the media or by the pundits.
