Re: [casi-analysis] The New Flag of Iraq

Yesterday was the first I had heard of the new flag.  NPR.  They interviewed
several Iraqi citizens and they reflected a number of issues.  This new flag
did not seem well received.  They did not appreciate the similarity to the
Israel flag, they did not appreciate the yellow which seemed to single out or
privilege the minority Kurds, and they did not appreciate the IGC changing the
symbol of their sovereignty with "NO public discussion."
For all of the rhetoric of the IGC and the Occupational "authority" relating
to democracy, I don't see much of it.

But make no mistake - as I said earlier - we have high confidence that they
have weapons of mass destruction. That is what this war was about and it is
about. And we have high confidence it will be found.
