The governor of Baghdad has a militia. Not a police force, but a substantial body of troops personally loyal to him. The Mayor of Baghdad was removed from office at gunpoint by that militia. The US forces in Iraq did not know in advance and have done nothing about it. Our
puppet spokesman figurehead PM is trying to keep things under control in time to get a constitution draft in place by next week, unless the issue of militias is too hard to negotiate. Negotiate? What happened to "put down your weapons and come out with your hands up"?
