U.N.I.E. (via Tom Morin):

UN report says U.S. breaking Qaeda (JAMES GORDON MEEK, 9/28/06, NY DAILY NEWS)

A United Nations report on Iraq echoed many of the dire predictions in an American assessment, but was also more optimistic about the fight against Al Qaeda. [...]

It claimed Al Qaeda "may see more losses than gains" in Iraq.

The flow of foreign fighters into Iraq hasslowed to a trickle, and the slaying of Al Qaeda in Iraq leader Abu Musab al-Zarqawi may have confused the uprising, the UN revealed.

Jihadists have reportedly been angered at being turned away from the fight against U.S. forces by Iraqis, who often offer only suicide bombing missions, the UN report said.

Even for our Intelligence agencies, it's a new low to understand things less well than the UN.
