The Battle of Baghdad The Battle of Baghdad

WSJ article: The Battle of Baghdad by Zalmay Khalilzad, the U.S. ambassador to Iraq, outlines our plan to combat the increased violence in Baghdad.

The plan is already bearing fruit. ABC News finds that the U.S. re-deployment of troops to Baghdad, and their placement in large numbers in the most dangerous neighborhoods, appears to be working. Preliminary reports show a significance decrease in violence. Iraqi authorities say the number of violent attacks has gone down by 30 percent. The U.S., using different calculations, says such attacks have decreased by 22 percent.
