Iraq's Constitutional Referendum: some interesting numbers

This Washington Times piece reflects the political progress being made in Iraq:

Nearly 70 percent of Iraqis voted in this month's constitutional referendum. The Bush administration and Iraq allies consider it a success. Here are some statistics that might explain why, compared with January's elections for the interim government.

• Polling centers: 6,235 vs. 5,677
• Poll workers: 171,000 vs. 102,000
• Applications to be poll workers: 450,000 vs. 110,000
• In violence-ridden al Anbar Province: 171 polling places vs. 33

The refusal of the MSM to rationally discuss and honestly report events in Iraq is appalling. The progress made in 2 1/2 years, measured by any objective standard, is astonishing.
