Water is wet.

If you're a regular reader, this will not come as a surprise.
Three months after the start of the Baghdad security plan that has added thousands of American and Iraqi troops to the capital, they control fewer than one-third of the city’s neighborhoods, far short of the initial goal for the operation, according to some commanders and an internal military assessment.....

When planners devised the Baghdad security plan late last year, they had assumed most Baghdad neighborhoods would be under control around July, according to a senior American military officer, so the emphasis could shift into restoring services and rebuilding the neighborhoods as the summer progressed.....

September is now the goal for establishing basic security in most neighborhoods, the same month that Bush administration officials have said they plan to review the progress of the plan.

The militias still infiltrate the Iraqi Police. They assist the Shia militants in the placement of IEDs. Ethnic cleansing and civil war are still taking place. US and Iraqi civilian casualties are up. Death squad killings are climbing, and we're being told once again to put off judgement for just a little longer.

Water is wet. Carry on.
