HUGE NEWS FROM THE SURGE. This is being reported by a news agency from Kuwait:

Muqtada Sadr office bombarded

BAGHDAD, Feb 20 (KUNA) -- A joint force of the Iraqi
Army and US troops Tuesday bombarded the office of Shiite leader Muqtada Al Sadr in Al-Shula area, west of Baghdad, a security source told KUNA.The source said some 14 military vehicles are now surrounding the office and Iraqi and US soldiers could be seen confiscating material and documents.Muqtada Al-Sadr himself is out of the country over fears for his safety.

If this is true, it would appear that Prime Minister Maliki has in fact declared open season on one of the prime causes of violence in Iraq. It would be critically good news for the surge.
