Washington has spent roughly $55,000 training and equiping every Iraqi soldier and security police officer. Around $19 billion in all . But no one seems to know what your tax dollars have actually bought.
The Washington Post got hold of a report to the House Armed Services Committee says those in charge can't explain just how well trained the Iraqis are, how they do their job, or even if they're doing it.
It's hard to know when to "stand" down if you don't know if the Iraqis are even "standing up." (WaPo)
