ABSTRACT
The article reports that U.S. President George W. Bush has consented to the use of benchmarks to measure the U.S. Armed Forces' progress in Iraq. The president had previously vetoed the U.S. Congress' fiscal year 2007 Defense supplemental bill on May 1, 2007, because it called for troop withdrawal from Iraq. The concession was reached when the House of Representatives passed a new supplemental bill which proposes to divide funds for the war into two installments.
