Glenn Reynolds: "facts" indicate we've won the war in Iraq.

Putz, who knows a thing or two about manufactured narratives:

DECLINING VIOLENCE IN IRAQ confuses journalists.

Because they know the narrative, but those pesky facts don't fit. . . .

Pesky fact:
Hundreds of US diplomats have protested against a government move to force them to accept postings in war-torn Iraq.

About 300 angry diplomats attended a meeting at the state department, at which one labelled the decision a "potential death sentence."

Now maybe it's just me but when US diplomats are calling assignment in Iraq's Green Zone a "death sentence" -- it doesn't sound like we're winning.
