Getting it done in Iraq

I saw this in Slate.com's Today's Papers -- there are some projects in Iraq that are on time -- the new U.S. Embassy.

USAT notices one U.S. construction effort in Iraq that's right on schedule: the $600 million, 104 acre U.S. Embassy. As for other projects, a recent Senate report concluded, "No large-scale, U.S.-funded construction program in Iraq has yet met its schedule or budget."
