WASHINGTON - Congressional auditors have determined that the Iraqi government has failed to meet the vast majority of political and military goals laid out by lawmakers to assess President Bush's Iraq war strategy, The Associated Press has learned.
Here's a prediction:
1) Every agency and group with a hand in auditing this thing will release a report or statement saying that the "surge" is NOT working.
2) Then Petraeus, on September 15th, will issue a report that comes straight out of fantasyland, saying that it's going EXACTLY as planned.
3) And the press will fail to question the General's integrity or the honesty of his report.
I'll give you odds.
