Front page of MJS: ‘Few attacks by non-Iraqis, generals say.’ Subheading: ‘Number caught slipping into country contrasts with larger Bush estimates.’ Well, the ones who get CAUGHT certainly aren’t carrying out the attacks.
MG David Petraeus, 101st Airborne CO, says about 20 people have been caught trying to cross since May. What about before that?
They’re probably right that most insurgents are Iraqi leftovers, but…

If those guys say the insurgents are mostly Iraqis, well, they're on the ground, they're reading the reports and seeing what's going on. I have no reason not to believe them. I have no reason not to believe that their coverage of border areas isn't as good as they say it is. But there was plenty of time before that when the border wasn't being watched by Americans; plenty of time before, and especially during, the war for extranationals to enter Iraq in preparation for a jihad. Certainly there was a lot of talk about such things from hardcore Islamists. So how does this really contradict Bush's assertion? Just asking.

Again, it isn't the ones who get caught that I'm worried about.
