The Saddam Effect. Or Not.


Here's two reports about the effect of Saddam's capture on insurgency in Iraq.

The first, from the Washington Times, says "that guerrilla attacks [in Baghdad] have dropped sharply since the Dec. 13 capture of Saddam Hussein."

The second, from Knight-Ridder via the San Jose Mercury News, says "Saddam Hussein's capture three weeks ago has not slowed the anti-American insurgency in Iraq, which now seems more entrenched than ever, according to a review of recent attacks and interviews with U.S. and Iraqi officials."

Now that that's all cleared up, we can really enjoy the weekend's football games.
