And in case you were considering forgetting:

I don't know why I bother to link to Dear Raed --- I mean, if you're interested in post-war Iraq, you're already reading him, and if you aren't, you don't. My pointing him out to you is a little like contacting the CBC's call-up show on reading list day, and letting them know about this great kid's series, Harry Potter.

Regardless, I found this entry too hard to ignore. In particular this paragraph:

One tiny bit of interesting news before I end this post.

The CIA is contacting Mukhabarat agents for possible cooperation. I swear I am not making this up. Officially there is something called a black list and gray list and pick-ur-color list, but what is happening behind the scenes is that they want to get three different groups.

The agents who were involved in work concerning the USA, they get shaken down for whatever they know and probably will be put on trial for various crimes.

The people who were involved in work concerning Russia, they are being called to interviews selectively.

And the people whose specialty was Iran, they are welcomed, asked if they would be kind enough to contact their colleagues and would they be interested in coming aboard the groovy train?

Sorry this is just wrong, Mukhabarat? You wouldn�t get your Mukhabarat ID if they didn�t know you were a sick fuck who would slit his mother�s throat to get up the party ladder. Or does Bremer�s �de-baathification plan� not include the secret service types?
Isn't that telling? The Americans are more interested in planning for their next invasion than in picking up the pieces of this one. Does this surprise anyone?
