Iraqi amnesty 'excludes killers'

A planned amnesty for Iraqi insurgents will not include those who have
killed Americans or other coalition troops, the new US ambassador in
Baghdad says. .... He [Negroponte] added that the draft had at one point
contained language that "lent itself to the interpretation that somehow
amnesty would be granted to people who had sought to harm coalition
forces". But, he said, he believed the ambiguity had been removed.

The Hand-Over that Wasn=92t: How the Occupation of Iraq Continues
By Antonia Juhasz

The U.S. occupation of Iraq officially ended on June 28, 2004, in a secret
ceremony in Baghdad. Officially, "full sovereignty" was handed from the Ame=
ricans to the Iraqi Interim Government. But it was clear from the start tha=
t this was sovereignty in name, not in deed. First, there is the continued =
military occupation: 138,000 U.S. soldiers and Marines, plus 20,000 troops =
from other countries and an estimated 20,000 contractors, all fully under U=
.S. control and with immunity from Iraqi laws. Equally debilitating, howeve=
r significantly less well reported upon, is the continued political and eco=
nomic occupation by the Bush administration and its corporate allies.

The most important tools being used by the Bush administration to maintain
varying degrees of economic and political control in Iraq are the 100 Order=
s enacted by L. Paul Bremer, III, head of the now-defunct Coalition Provisi=
onal Authority (CPA) before his departure. It was thought that the "end" of=
 the occupation would also mean the end of the Orders. Instead, in his fina=
l Order enacted on his last day in the country, Bremer simply transferred a=
uthority for the Orders over to the new Prime Minister, Iyad Allawi.

ation ( and a Foreign Policy In Focus scholar ( S=

conomic Globalization: a Better World is Possible, 2nd Ed.
