Benchmarks without consequences are meaningless

For those of you who support John Boehner's plan to fully fund Bush's war with "benchmarks" that only require he give an update on progress every few months, consider this:
Pentagon restricting testimony in Congress

The memo has fueled complaints that the Bush administration is trying to restrict access to information about the war in Iraq.

The special House oversight panel, according to aides, has written at least 10 letters to the Pentagon since February seeking information and has received only one official reply. Nor has the Pentagon fully complied with repeated requests for all the monthly assessments of Iraqi security forces, reports compiled by US military advisers embedded with Iraqi units.
