Surge gets failing grade

In voting to continue the costly occupation of Iraq, the "Democratically" controlled Congress issued 18 benchmarks for our new Iraqi allies. The report card is in.

Pass = 3
Incomplete = 4
No Pass = 11

(CNN) "Overall, key legislation has not been passed, violence remains high, and it is unclear whether the Iraqi government will spend $10 billion in reconstruction funds," according to testimony from David M. Walker, comptroller general, to the Senate Foreign Relations Committee.

But it did offer grounds for hope.

"These results do not diminish the courageous efforts of coalition forces and progress that has been made in several areas, including Anbar Province," Walker said in comments released Tuesday.

Once again we see, when all else fails, cloak your self in the courage of the troops.
