From a State Department Press Briefing:
Question: How may Arabic speakers with 3/3 levels of proficiency are currently serving at Embassy Baghdad?
Answer: We currently have ten Foreign Service Officers (including the Ambassador) at Embassy Baghdad at or above the 3 reading / 3 speaking level in Arabic. An additional five personnel at Embassy Baghdad have tested at or above the 3 level in speaking. A 3/3 indicates a general professional fluency level.
The Baghdad Embassy. Out of 1000 employees at the Bagdhad Embassy, TEN can read and speak Arabic fluently. Another 5 can speak it.
SIX YEARS after 9/11, and four years after starting a WAR there. Ten out of a THOUSAND.
