Iraqis and US working together in parts of Baghdad

The surge is working in Baghdad’s Ameriya district, thanks in no small part to US forces and Iraqis being able to work together to root out Al Qaeda. Watch this 5 minute report that details how things were at the start of the surge, compared to how they are now.
