Eyewitness Account of US Administration of Iraq
Amal Winter posts at H-Net a fascinating account of her recent 3-week trip to Iraq as part of a delegation of International Federation for Election Systems. She is an Arab-American intellectual, and her perspective is unique. She confirms our worst fears about how isolated the Coalition Provisional Authority is from the Iraqis it is supposed to be administering. She also has interesting comments on the US civilian contractors working in Iraq (she charges that they are running a racket with guaranteed profits, indemnified from risk).
