The story of the year

is that Iraq is no longer making news. Or, at least, no longer making bad news.

Consider this sentence from the front page of The Washington Post:

“Iraq violence continues decline. A10.”

If, one year ago, you’d been told Iraq would be page 10 news, instead of page 1, you’d have been stunned. Congratulations to General Betray Us — oops, Gen. Petraeus.
