Wednesday Wanderings: Updated With Video From Amy Proctor

Hugh Hewitt had a great interview with Gen. Petreus today on the remarkable progress being made in Iraq, yea the occasional bombs still go off and will for the foreseeable future but that does not mean progress is not being made. It seems many of the Nationalist groups now understand that we are not there to steal their oil but to help them rebuild a country they can be proud of and are now supporting the Gov't and the MNF-I against the foreigners trying to destabilize them.
Bill Roggio reports on this and the capture early this month of an AQ bigturban in Mosul, they say the most senior Iraqi member of AQ in Iraq, this is a choice catch and he has spilled some interesting beans to interrogators.
Wretchard at the Belmont Club has some gifted as usual analysis. This is so rich, have we turned the corner on the propaganda war as well? We have a great counter-narrative to use now, you'll have to read Wretchard's post to find out though, a little incentive to go read it. I like it, I like it!
The Dems just don't get it and can't even pass a fake bill, they don't have the votes to end the filibuster and won't get them. Republicans and conservatives want to leave Iraq after winning a sustainable peace, Democrats want to run away and play socialism here at home after losing a major war to crazed jihadis. Nuts just plain old nuts, Sen. Byrd seems to be having some serious problems. He has really gone down hill the last couple years, just one more reason for term limits.

Speaking of term limits, what do y'all think, 12 years, 24 total, 2 Senate terms and six house? That is the exit question.
My buddy Amy Proctor has this great video posted.

More great stuff from Mike Yon, right there on the frontlines with a video interview and here as well in another segment.
