Mullen calls U.S. Army 'world's greatest counterinsurgency force

WASHINGTON, Oct. 8, 2008 - As the world's most skilled counterinsurgency warfare force, the U.S. Army has been the catalyst for reduced violence in Iraq, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff said here today.

Navy Adm. Mike Mullen said several factors contributed to the reduction in bloodshed in Iraq: the now-completed surge of U.S. forces, Sunni fighters aligning themselves with Iraqi and coalition forces to help purge al-Qaida and maintain security, and a cease-fire pledge by prominent Shiite cleric Moqtada al-Sadr, who controlled several militias.
