"Focused Targeting" in Iraq

As Democrats try to lose the war by opposing the President's troop surge, Austin Bay notes that -- more than the additional troops -- a real difference in the military situation in Iraq is due to "focused targeting" (under which Iraq and American troops target Shia and Sunni extremist organizations). The Iraqi army has also become more aggressive in countering insurgents.

Again, it's worth wondering: Why aren't the papers and the rest of the MSM covering this? These are worthy developments; they don't guarantee success, but they make it more likely.

The MSM (and the Dems) don't look for, expect or cover anything that fails to fit in to their predetermined "failure" template. And as everyone knows, when all one has is an ideological hammer, everything looks like an ideological nail.
