What is happening in Najaf?

Once again our national media have let us down. There are reports that Muqtada al-Sadr's forces have left the Imam Ali shrine, but if the past is any indication our national media don't know as much as they claim. It seems that previous reports of a cease fire in Najaf were exaggerated. Salon has the story from the last correspondent allowed inside the Imam Ali shrine.
