On NPR this morning, Lourdes Garcia-Navarro was reporting from Sadr City in Baghdad, and, well, this doesn't sound promising (my transcript of the audio):

... just so you realize a little bit of the complications here in Sadr City: We were escorted in to the Sadr office by a police vehicle, and as we were commenting on the roadside bomb that exploded, I said to one of the policemen, "Well, I hope you know where they are," and they laughed jovially and said, "Yes, we know where they all are. So don't worry, nothing will be targeting us," which, again, I think, gives you an idea of how the police inside Sadr City have been operating for the past six days of fighting.

As Iraqis stand up....
