More Trouble With Iraqi Constitution

The talks originally scheduled for 6:00 p.m. today, which were postponed to 8:00 p.m. today, have now been postponed again, to 10:00 p.m. today. The deadline for presenting the draft constitution is midnight tonight Baghdad time, which is 4:00 p.m. EDT.

Again, if that deadline is not met, under Iraqi transitional law the parliament elected for the sole purpose of drafting the constitution will be dissolved and a new one will have to be elected.

You're under the impression that anyone is going to pay attention to the laws. You really think this administration is going to particularly hold itself to Iraqi law?

No, I'm under no such impression. But I do think it's worth pointing out.
