"Yet another Democratic Congressman has returned from Iraq impressed by what he found. This time, Joe Donnelly (D-IN) says that he sees where Petraeus is heading, and that we will succeed if we persevere in the short term"
"Donnelly made an interesting observation on reconciliation. Provincial governments have worked with each other more successfully than reported, doing better on pragmatic reconciliation than the central government in Baghdad. That may surprise some, as the media constantly talks about the lack of provincial elections. The government bodies in place appear to be delivering stability and security even without the elections, and the Iraqis are responding to the success."
