Here's the November 15 agreement re: the CPA and transition in Iraq. Sidenote--When viewing, check out "essential services" tab at top. The photos of the electrical rebuilding are phenomonal. Since none of the dates have come to pass yet, I take a "believe it when I see it" approach. There haven't been many agreements on paper that have "held" completely in places going through the change that Iraq is right now. That is not to say that I don't believe that the people of Iraq are not capable of making it happen, it is just that I don't think that the "average" Iraqi holds that much sway yet, they don't realize that they do, and thus they don't, if you get my meaning. Just read the link to the NY Times article in my post from Tuesday, Dec 2nd. We are reminded that the fear is still so pervasive that many people won't be honest with their opinions or endorsements. I will continue to do some more research on this subject. Cullinan will be doing a follow up article and links to previous articles as well, so it should be interesting reading.

Let's hope more of Iraq starts to "voice" themselves as some of their brave citizens have.
