General Petraues reported on the status of the troop surge in Iraq and its “success”.  You can catch a clean synopsis courtesy of MSNBC’s Countdown (bias alert- the host, Keith Obermann, does little to hide his disdain for the Bush administration).

Thanks to the general’s report I have added a new abbreviation to my personal dictionary.  AQI.  That’s “Al Qaeda in Iraq”.  Try it out.
