ABSTRACT
This article reports on a large security crackdown in June 2006 in Baghdad. Iraqi soldiers and policemen, supported by American troops, took control of whole neighborhoods in an effort to bring an end to the sectarian and criminal violence that has afflicted the city. There was a slight decrease in the intensity of the insurgency, but Baghdad remained dangerous due to car and suicide bombings. Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki attempted to win over elements of the Sunni insurgency.
