More and more Iraqi troops and police are taking the lead and
becoming effective against the insurgents.
"The Iraqi people are tiring of the insurgency. Both hotline and in-person
tips have increased greatly," said Lt. Col. Clifford Kent, a Task Force
Baghdad spokesman. "A big reason for the increase in tips is because of
the Iraqi soldiers taking the lead during raids and operations. The Iraqis
will talk to their own soldiers much more readily than to coalition forces."
