Maliki's mentor

January 16, 2007

Re "Iraqi leader goes own way to fill top post," Jan. 13

Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri Maliki has appointed a relatively unknown officer to take charge of Baghdad, over objections by his commanders and without consulting other political factions. Maliki has learned well from his mentor and protector, President Bush. Now that he has adopted democracy and politics, Bush administration-style, we can declare victory and go home.
