  1. Wish I could make this but can’t make it up to D.C. Will there be video or audio we can download afterwards?

  2. I sent in a nicely formatted pice with extensive links, but it was confiscated. Here is a plain text from copy

    Post from – KingMaker II – by John Quiggin

    Update I couldn’t find much blogospheric reaction to Sadr’s rise, so I thought I’d check at Warblogger Central. I couldn’t see anything recent, but Instapundit has followed Sadr’s career, which apparently follows an uninterrupted trajectory of decline (he notes, in this respect, the incisive analysis of the Belmont Club). Some samples

    The murders are the first sign of organised Iraqi opposition to Sadr’s presence a [Apr 29, 04]

    those who thought Sadr represented a mass movement among Iraqis were seriously mistaken. [May 5, 04]

    ANOTHER BAD DAY for the increasingly irrelevant Sadr. [May 26, 04]


    Demonstrators shouted chants denouncing al-Sadr, including one that equated him with deposed dictator Saddam Hussein. [Sep 3, 04]

    Bush has successfully mitigated the perils of having to grapple with two insurgencies simultaneously through a nuanced combination of sophisticated counter-insurgency efforts and attendant political machinations contra Moktada al-Sadr. [Nov 1, 04]

    Sadr seems to drop of the Instaradar screen after that, at least as far as my Google skills can detect, and maybe he was quietly rehabilitated in the course of 2005. Oceania has, after all, always been at war with Eastasia.
