GAO report on Iraq

leave a comment »

The GAO report summary (PDF file) is now available and is worth reading. Two significant graphs:

18 Benchmarks

Click this and click again for full size. It’s the report on the 18 benchmarks. Solid disk means benchmark has been met, half-solid means partially met, circle means not met. I couldn’t get the 18th on the snapshot: it is “Ensuring that Iraq’s political authorities are not undermining or making false accusations against members of the Iraqi security forces.” Not met.

Civilian deaths

This chart (click thumbnail and click image for full size) is self explanatory: the pattern of attacks.

There’s a good discussion of the report here.
