Glass half full

Reuters: "Iraq leaders failing to meet key goals: White House" - "the White House told Congress on Friday that Iraqi leaders had failed to meet half of their key goals..."

Washington Post - same exact news item, different headline: "White House Cites 'Satisfactory Progress' on Iraq Goals" - "The White House said today that Iraq has made "satisfactory progress" toward meeting nine of 18 political, economic and security benchmarks..."

It would be the classic glass half full, half empty situation. Except for one thing. Both stories are wrong, because the glass is actually not only completely empty, but broken.
