Iraqi Force Development: Coalition Reporting as of the Fall of 2005
November 21, 2005
There seems to be a great deal of ignorance about the details of Iraqi force development, and the level of progress that is being attained. The US and MNSTC-I have provided substantial additional data on Iraqi force development in recent weeks. Key sources include the Bush Administration’s October 13, 2005, “Report on Measuring Stability and Security in Iraq.” They also include detailed insights into Iraqi force development that General David Petraeus provided in his November 7, 2005 briefing at the CSIS.
