This is Progress?

“The number of Iraqi army battalions that can fight
insurgents without U.S. and coalition help has dropped
from THREE to ONE, top U.S. generals told Congress
yesterday, adding that the security situation in Iraq
is too uncertain to predict large-scale American troop
withdrawals anytime soon.

Gen. George W. Casey Jr., who oversees U.S. forces in
Iraq, said there are fewer Iraqi battalions at "Level
1" readiness than there were a few months ago.”
