Whoops. One more: " 'Good Progress' So Far; Worst May Lie Ahead," "excerpts from a news conference at the Pentagon yesterday [Monday, March 31] by Victoria Clarke, the Pentagon spokeswoman, and Maj. Gen. Stanley McChrystal, vice director of operations of the Joint Chiefs of Staff," running on the last page of Nation at War, B16, has Clarke saying: "There has been thus far no humanitarian crisis or mass exodus of refugees."

Given that it is a Pentagon briefing, the remainder of the remarks are focused on the military campaign rather than humanitarian aid.
