Iraqi Government taking shape

The Washington Times: Editorials:

There will be a Sunni speaker of the National Assembly, a Kurdish president, a Shia prime minister, and Sunni and Shia vice presidents. The Foreign Affairs ministry will go to a Kurd, the Defense ministry to a Sunni, and Oil, Interior and Finance ministries to the Shia. 'They are still juggling with the names (of the ministers)' said the Dawa Party spokesman. 'In the coming week, we will hear more about the names of the strong candidates.'
Stephen Den Beste wrote this excellent analysis of the Iraqi interim constitution over a year ago. It is well worth reading if you haven't seen it before. I expect that the 'final' contitution for Iraq will be remarkably similar to the interim constitution they are now operating under.
