A good strike 
One more tidbit from the Washington Post:

Remember that disputed airstrike that killed 19 or so Ramadi "civilians" back in October?

Yep, that's the one. First reported on by Ellen Knickmeyer, too.
From today's Washington Post (linked to below) we learn that after that strike, the number of IEDs in that neighborhood was reduced to almost nothing.

It would have been good to see some follow-up to that strike prior to today. The obvious question to have asked in October is whether, after having made the airstrike, there was actually a decrease in the number of IED attacks in that sector.

If there was such a decrease in insurgent activity, that would have become obvious within a week or two. I'm unaware of any follow-up reporting, though.

Thanks for the follow-through.
