Bush admin. won’t shift Iraq strategy – Yahoo! News:

Rumsfeld, in remarks at the Pentagon, said U.S. government and military officials were working with Iraq to set broad time frames for when Iraqis can take over 16 provinces that are still under the control of U.S. troops. He said officials were not talking about penalizing the Iraqis if they don’t hit certain benchmarks.

I have to admit that I’m having a hard time working through this one. Is it more important to meet benchmarks when lives are at stake and there is no possibility of “catching up” later or making schools meet average yearly progress goals when there is the possibility of saving the “education” life of a student later?
