Statement on whether or not the gov┐t. of Iraq has met 18 benchmarks contained in an Act which requires a report on the status of the achievement of these benchmarks. The benchmarks cover Iraqi gov┐t. actions needed to advance reconciliation within Iraqi society, improve the security of the Iraqi pop┐n., provide essential services to the pop┐n., & promote economic well-being. In summary, the Iraqi gov┐t. met 3, partially met 4, & did not meet 11 of its 18 benchmarks. Overall, key legislation has not been passed, violence remains high, & it is unclear whether the Iraqi govt. will spend $10 billion in reconstruction funds. The gov┐t. has not enacted legislation on de-Ba┐athification, oil revenue sharing, provincial elections, amnesty, & militia disarmament. Tables.
