The Fall of Falluja

by Jerry Bader

This is a story that has gone largely unreported in this country.  As the New York Times piece points out, Falluja was an iconic moment in the Iraq War. And the Marines who engaged in that battle cannot believe it has fallen a decade later. It was predicted this would happen when we left Iraq when we did. And it underscores the rapid advancement of Al Qaeda in the Mideast. And it's happening as America pays no attention at all, because it wants to forget Iraq.
