This Just In From The Car Bomb Of The Day Media

Not that you'd expect this, given the continuing focus of the MSM on whatever bomb went off in Iraq today:
The number of truck bombs and other large al-Qaeda-style attacks in Iraq have declined nearly 50% since the United States started increasing troop levels in Iraq about six months ago, according to the U.S. military command in Iraq.

The high-profile attacks — generally large bombs hitting markets, mosques or other "soft" targets that produce mass casualties — have dropped to about 70 in July from a high during the past year of about 130 in March, according to the Multi-National Force — Iraq.

The story is listed as the fifth link on Yahoo's USA Today section. Over on the USA Today on-line home page, it's not visible at all. Click on the World section, and you'll find it about halfway down the page on the right.

Since this qualifies as "the surge is working" news, MSM best not play it up too much.
