Latest intel on Iraq.

http://news.yahoo.com/news?tmpl=stor...at_1&printer=1

The top general in the region, Gen. John Abizaid, estimated Thursday that insurgent fighters in Iraq total no more than 5,000, and he said the largest and most dangerous groups are Saddam loyalists.




5000 doesn't sound like much, but I imagine it's a bitch trying to pick them out in a crowd around town.

The White House yesterday drew up emergency plans to accelerate the transfer of power in Iraq after being shown a devastating CIA report warning that the guerrilla war was in danger of escalating out of US control.

One military intelligence assessment now estimates the insurgents' strength at 50,000. Analysts cautioned that such a figure was speculative, but it does indicate a deep-rooted revolt on a far greater scale than the Pentagon had led the administration to believe.

OOPS

Looks like somebody made a typo and missed a zero.
Let's just hope that they accidentally added a zero.....50,000 doesn't sound so good.
