Public Law 110-28 requires a report to Congress by Sept. 1, 2007, on whether or not the gov┐t. of Iraq has met 18 benchmarks contained in the Act, & the status of the achievement of these benchmarks. The benchmarks stem from commitments first articulated by the Iraqi gov┐t. in June 2006. In comparison, the Act requires the admin. to report in July & Sept. 2007 on whether satisfactory progress is being made toward meeting the benchmarks, not whether the benchmarks have been met. The author reviewed gov┐t. documents & interviewed officials from U.S. agencies, the U.N.; & the gov┐t. of Iraq. He also made multiple visits to Iraq during 2006 & 2007. This analyses was enhanced by 100 Iraq-related audits that have been completed since May `03.
