'Newspapers of record' tended to ignore the story while AP subscribers tweaked the title:
The New London (CT) Day -- "Are we winning the unwinnable war?"
Arizona (Tucson) Daily Star -- "Focus shifts away from combat"
Salt Lake City Deseret News -- "Is U.S. now winning war in Iraq?"
Fort Worth Star Telegram -- "Iraq war's tide appears to have turned in favor of US"
Newsday (Long Island, NY) -- "Analysis: U.S. can shift from combat to peace in Iraq"
Only the the Christian Broadcasting Network gave it a more positive headline, "Analysis: US Now Winning Iraq War".
