Don't expect to see this in the major media

Moqtada Packs It In - "Shiite cleric Moqtada al-Sadr plans to announce Friday that he will disarm his Mahdi Army, which was raining mortars on Baghdad's Green Zone as recently as April. Coupled with the near-total defeat of al Qaeda in Iraq, this means the U.S. no longer faces any significant organized military foe in the country. It also marks a major setback for Iran, which had used the Mahdi Army as one of its primary vehicles for extending its influence in Iraq."
Remember this fellow? He was headline news when he was leading this army and they were wreaking havoc and making us look bad. But now he is out of business.
