Electrical News from Iraq

Deltoid (Chris Lambert) compares the stories we've been getting to the Brookings Institue's figures on Iraq's electrical capacity. Things do not appear to be exactly as Art Chrenkoff believes they are.

One commenter questions the Brookings Institute's figures.

Anyone have any thoughts?

UPDATE: In the comments on this post, Jim Heney defends the Brookings Institute; apparently their figures come from a State Department report. (Which explains why none of the neocons bother to look at it; not only does it contradict the rosy scenario they predict, but it comes from the State Department, aka the source of all evil - as opposed to the source of all good, i.e., Ahmad Chalabi).

Thanx and a tip o' the hat to Tex and to Jim Henley.

That is all.
