What, no mortars?

This is the question that every troop I talked to asked.

If you're looking for evidence of the level of security in Baghdad, try this. News of the President's presence in the IZ broke at roughly 1600 local time. He was publicly on the ground in the belly of the beast for roughly five hours and there were NO mortar or rocket attacks. I don't care what excuses a person comes up with, fact is the insurgents didn't attack. Whether they couldn't organize quick enough or they couldn't maneauver with all the security, they couldn't do so because of the level of security in Baghdad.

Is it the final test? Obviously no, it's not. It is, however, an testament to the success of both Iraqi and Coalition forces.
