GAO releases this week

The Government Accountability Office (GAO) is often called the investigative arm of Congress. You may have heard discussion this week about a GAO report on progress in Iraq. See the Washington Post articles, "Report Finds Little Progress On Iraq Goals: GAO Draft at Odds With White House" and the response to the release "Pentagon Challenges GAO's Report on Iraq" The problem is that this discussion is in response to the draft report, the final report won't be released until Tuesday, so you won't find it in this list. You can find it online then on the Iraq page at the GAO's web site. If you would like to know more about the GAO, check out the library's guide.
