: Senator Reed to Discuss New Center for American Progress Action Fun Mid-Year Assessment in Iraq
U.S. Senator Jack Reed (D-RI) and the Center for American Progress Action Fund will discuss a new mid-year report assessing the Bush administration’s record in taking steps to ensure that 2006 is a period of significant transition.
This report, the second quarterly report in a series planned by the Center for American Progress Action Fund, assesses the Bush administration’s record on Iraq in four key areas: Security and Stability; Governance and Democracy; Economic Reconstruction; and Iraq’s Impact on U.S. National Security.
Last November, a bipartisan majority of 79 Senators voted for a measure declaring 2006 “to be a period of significant transition” and calling on the Bush administration to put forward a strategy for “the successful completion of the mission in Iraq.” Earlier this month, the General Accounting Office, an independent investigative arm of Congress, found that the Bush administration’s strategy for stabilizing Iraq does not adequately or effectively describe the steps it will take to achieve its goals.
The mid-year assessment report by the Center for American Progress Action Fund aims to fill gaps left unmet by status reports submitted by the Bush administration to Congress and the American public.
