Re: Iraq

Andy:

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?
