The Iraq Group Study Is Out

The bipartisan Iraq Study Group publicly released its report as promised Wednesday, and the bottom line is: “There is no magic formula to solve the problems of Iraq. However, there are actions that can be taken to improve the situation.” In its 160-page report, the ISG calls the situation “grave and deteriorating” says there must be “new and enhanced diplomatic and political efforts in Iraq and the region … and a change in the primary mission of US forces in Iraq.”
