Pentagon wants changes in Iraq report

Change the grades, military officials tell the GAO.

That didn't take long: After reviewing a "strikingly negative" draft report on Iraq prepared by the Government Accountability Office, the Pentagon has "made some factual corrections" and "offered some suggestions on a few of the actual grades" the GAO gave. Pentagon spokesman Geoff Morrell wouldn't say much about the Pentagon's concerns about the draft report, only that the military thinks the GAO should change its findings on some benchmarks from "not met" to "met."
