    Me too, but the phrase "classified annexes" makes me think we won't get to see the juciest parts.

    It'll take a good amount of spin and brilliant fudging of statistics to show progress. I'd like to see how they will do it, considering that attacks are up, Iraqi casualties are skyrocketing, US casualties have been high for the last two months (above the 2.1 per day average), and coalition partners are withdrawing while the ones that do remain are disengaging.)

    They could have the report only cover statistics through April, claiming that it will take a while to process the newer numbers. April was a lull month with relatively low casualties.
