I did Nexis and Google searches. They indicated no U.S. newspaper ran a separate story about the memo, or an Iraqi roundup story highlighting the memo. I doubt this would have been the case had the memo writer said al Qaida was winning.
Really? No newspaper ran a story? What about these:
NY Times: Seized Papers Said to Show Qaeda in Iraq Is Worried
USA Today: Documents: Terrorists worry cells ineffective
Damn you, MSM!
