Question: shouldn't drafting the Iraqi constitution be an Iraqi affair? Isn't Iraq a sovereign nation? Apparently not:
Kurdish politicians negotiating a draft constitution criticized the U.S. ambassador to Iraq on Saturday, accusing him of pushing them to accept too great a role for Islamic law in his drive to complete the charter on time.
I think if I were on the Constitutional Committee, I'd give the US a nice Bronx--err, Baghdad--cheer and tell them that the constitution will be ready when it's ready, not when the President thinks he needs to goose poll numbers.
