More Nonsense About Benchmarks
Back in July we heard about how Iraq supposedly didn't meet its benchmarks for progress. Then came another effort to claim they haven't met benchmarks and that effort at presentation got its comeuppance. Much of the discussion revolves around a GAO report on progress in Iraq, one that supposedly paints a pessimistic picture and which was flawed to start with. One area in particular pertains to Iraq's security forces, which the MSM obviously wish would fail, hence their premature spilling of ink claiming their progress has been slow or nonexistent. Nice try, guys, but the MSM didn't call the ball right - again.
