6. Bush's reaction to the Iraqi's not hitting the benchmarks is probably
part of what brought this on. They have done NOTHING to hold themselves to their own benchmarks. Meanwhile, they took a month off while our soldiers died. They also probably heard an earful when they took their break. Everybody said, wait until September until General Petreaus's report. Well, they got the report, and the message.
