Well, D-uh!

General Urges New Strategy for Baghdad - New York Times:
Maj. Gen. William B. Caldwell IV, the senior spokesman for the American military in Iraq, said that the strategy of concentrating on a limited number of highly troubled neighborhoods had not slowed sectarian violence in the city as a whole.

Attacks in the Baghdad area went up 22 percent during the first three weeks of Ramadan in comparison with the three weeks before, an increase General Caldwell called “disheartening.”
Seems like no matter how many generals they "retire", the ones in charge keep coming to the same conclusion: we're losing in Iraq and Afghanistan and something has to change. Just wait until next year, boys. It's coming!
