MNFI Good News From Iraq

Take notice of slide 11 especially. The number of tips from Iraqi's is growing, which is indicative of both an increase in security and a growing weariness of the terrorists' activities.

More importantly, Iraqi's must feel safe in giving the tips without fear of retribution from the insurgents. Obviously they sense a greater security, otherwise they would not be stepping forward like they are. If they have a greater sense of security, then we (coalition and Iraqi forces) must be doing an increasingly better job of providing security. Despite what you hear on TV......
