Iraq Weekly Status Report

I saw this this weekly report linked on Slate. Death by Powerpoint, State Department Style.

I worked on a lot of briefings like this at CENTCOM. Not the sexiest, macho stuff in the world, but somebody has to be the "Powerpoint Ranger".

This part is interesting:

"The Government of Iceland will allocate $1.5 million to a prosthetics project to be run by Ossur, Inc. in a hospital in Dahuk, northern Iraq. The project's aim is to provide up to 600 Iraqis with prosthetic feet, provide local Iraqi prosthetic specialists with the training and provide follow-up treatment for the Iraqi recipients. Preparations for the project have already started and it is estimated to last for the next 12-18 months."

Way to go Iceland!
