Progress thus far in the three areas that we’re operating in: Nine hundred tons of trash have been removed from those three neighborhoods already, with more being removed each day. Kilometer after kilometer of barriers emplaced, building what some may call the semblance of a gated community, affording them greater security with ingress and egress routes established and manned by Iraqi security forces with coalition forces in support to ensure that the people have a safe neighborhood to live in.

Interesting stuff. Read it all, but I hope George Will doesn’t see the trash removal thing—it will drive him absolutely nuts.
