Sovereignty Lite: The June 30th deadline for handing over power to an interim Iraqi government remains firm. But what exactly are we handing over? Not control of the pursestrings or the billions in aid. Not military control (even over the seedling-sized Iraqi military). No reduction in coalition forces. No control over the police. A huge U.S. embassy will open as will the largest CIA station in the world.
No wonder we’re still fine with timing of the handover.
