HeadlineJan 05, 2004

The Washington Post is reporting that the U.S. will formally launch this week the process to handover of power in Iraq by the deadline of June 30. According to the Post several key questions remain unanswered including: what kind of government will Iraq have? what will the role of Islam be? How much local rule will be given to ethnic, tribal or religious groups? Among other things the U.S. is likely to demand that all U.S. forces in Iraq be given immunity from any legal action.
