Limited Sovereignty

On the question of what will happen in Iraq after June 30, it appears the Bush administration is finally making an incremental movement beyond "We'll find that out soon."

Granted, we still don't know who will be in charge. But in a Senate Foreign Relations Committee hearing the administration has presented a vague outline of what the entity might look like.

At best, what the Iraqi entity will have is only limited sovereignty. Political rhetoric which suggess otherwise is simply misleading. And there's no indication yet what will happen if there's a conflict between the Iraqi entity and the occupying American force. That's a big problem.

Still, it's more than we've seen thus far. Ten weeks to go and counting.
