Army, Marines exceed recruiting goals

But what is Reuters headline?

"Army, Marines say they made recruiting goals"

And yet in their report Reuters has this to say:

"Army officials said they had exceeded by several hundred their target of recruiting 80,000 new active duty soldiers for fiscal year 2007, which ended on September 30.

Last month, the Army said it had already gone beyond its retention target of getting 62,200 soldiers to re-enlist for the same period.

The Marine Corps said it had exceeded its goal of growing its ranks to 184,000 in the same fiscal year and now had 186,000 Marines."
