"Mission accomplished" for Iraqi insurgents?
We were making progress at repairing infrastructure during the summer, but the picture looks different now...
USATODAY.com - Sabotage continues in Iraq:
"Long gas lines and lengthy power outages are again plaguing the capital city, the result of continued sabotage of oil pipelines and attacks on contractors.

'We are in a security clampdown,' Army Corps of Engineers spokesman Mike McAleer said. Some reconstruction work has been halted while officials examine the threat to workers.

Gas supplies and electricity have been a problem in the capital since Baghdad fell in April. Over the summer, however, the coalition made progress in rebuilding infrastructure. Gas lines dwindled and electricity reached a level of at least 12 hours of power every day in Baghdad."
