ABSTRACT

Iraq: Government Formation and Benchmarks [Updated September 20, 2007]   [open pdf - 70KB]

From the Summary: "Elections in 2005 produced a permanent constitution and a broad-based but Shiite-led government that has been unwilling or unable to take major steps to reduce Sunni popular resentment and is showing signs of fragmentation. An FY2007 supplemental appropriation (P.L. [Public Law] 110-28) mandated Administration reports by July 15 and September 15, 2007, and a GAO [Government Accountability Office] report by September 1, 2007, assessing Iraqi government progress on eighteen 'benchmarks' that are intended to promote political reconciliation. See CRS [Congressional Research Service] Report RL31339, Iraq: Post-Saddam Governance and Security, by Kenneth Katzman."
