More Good News From Iraq

For those suffering 'outrage fatigue' or some similar malady preventing adequate reaction to the Bush Administration's ridiculous spin re: Iraq, perhaps the following links will help fire up the appropriate synaptic response:

I know I am behind the 8-ball on some of these postings, however, I just finished reading the Boston Globe article and find myself scared and confused.

Since I am skeptical of all news, I am curious about a thinktank that doesn't publish it's name with it's findings, although maybe this practice is the norm. But to make such a claim as "the vast majority of [foreign fighters] are not former terrorists and became radicalized by the war" scares me. What scares me even more is that this was an Israeli thinktank. Is this just more scare and hate tactics by the Arab people to drive out the "infidels" American or otherwise from Arab land? Or is America responsible for being there in the first place? Will this ever end?
