It will take 100 years

From a Multi-National Force Iraq press release reporting the capture of a senior bad guy --

[Mullah] Jasim is believed to have numerous contacts within the Iraqi Security Forces that help facilitate his operations by providing him with information on the presence of Coalition forces in an area.

Those would the same Iraqi security forces who are supposed to be taking up the burden so that US troops can "return on success". The good news is that it doesn't matter that they don't have secure communications equipment, since they're riddled with spies anyway.
