Re: Iraq



I’m with you, the stories coming out of Iraq are very bad, let’s hope it works out differently–after all, the drafters in Baghdad surely know that most Iraqis are against a sharia-dominated state, and the odds are that if they write such a document, they’ll be rejected. I’m also concerned because our current ambassador, Zal Khalilzad, was previously ambassador in Afghanistan and he sat still for a constitution that called the country an “Islamic Republic,” fulfilling the demands of the Iranians.

I hope he’s braver in Baghdad.

As for “getting off the bus,” well, you got a better one? KLo for prez?
