Zarqawi may or may not be tanking in popularity, but as Matthew Yglesias notes, Muqtada Sadr is doing quite well these days. Someone notes in the comments that Casey Sheehan was killed in the violence which began when we went in to try and shut him down. I wonder if that will start to filter into Sheehan coverage, leading to a greater public realization of just how things have developed in Iraq during the past year. Of course, whether such understanding will lead ultimately to better policy or greater pandering is another question.
