Check out this article by UPI’s Eli Lake on the growing split between the US and the US-appointed Iraqi Governing Council (IGC), particularly as that rift came out into the open in New York this week.

This question has so many moving parts — who should have authority over the ministries, who doles out the contracts, whether the IGC really has that much more legitimacy than Bremer — that it’s awfully hard to make heads or tails of. But I’m quite skeptical that a quick move to devolve control to this IGC would be a good idea.

On this issue, if on few others, I think the administration is right.
