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 author reviewed gov¿t. documents & interviewed officials from U.S. agencies, the U.N.; & the gov¿t. of Iraq.
