The Wall Street Journal reports in its Iraq editorial today that the public affairs shop at the Multinational Security Transition Office Command in Iraq–they do the training–says Fallows never visited nor did he ever contact them during the course of the reporting for his piece.

The Journal also points out the chief flaw of the Fallows piece–it is backwards-looking, giving relative short shrift to the gains that have been made since we began learning from our mistakes.
