More Benchmarks

MORE BENCHMARKS….I want to highlight something from the previous post. Regardless of whether you believe that Bush’s “benchmarks” in Iraq are serious or not, Defense Secretary Robert Gates testified that we’d know if Maliki was meeting them “probably within a couple of months.”

That was on January 12. A couple of months takes us to March 12. We should expect to see Gates back in front of the Armed Services Committee on that date.
