Cartoon #127: Sovereignty
On the first anniversary of sovereignty, the Iraqi government had seven weeks to draft a constitution, with an optional six month extention.
Polls of U.S. citizens showed a majority see the U.S. occupation as a misadventure that is going badly, and a majority think we were lied to about the reasons for the war.
President Bush will try to dispel those concerns with a primetime speech. The anniversary of Iraqi sovereignty will always fall less than a week before the fourth of July. Happy Independence Day.
I may have more to say about this later.
