The Day In Iraq
On Day to Day
Madeleine Brand talked to Christian Science Monitor
correspondent Dan Murphy, reporting from Baghdad about the Iraqi Constitution
. During their conservation Ms. Brand asked if the Kurds and Shi'ia forced through a constitution, wouldn't that start a civil war, to which Mr. Murphy responded [my paraphrase] - wake up and smell the cordite, the civil war is in progress.
Mr. Murphy apparently thinks because he is in Iraq with Iraqi sources, listening to the gunfire and explosions, he gets to tell people about the reality without clearing it with Karen Hughes.
I just heard [4PM, CDT] that the Kurds and Shi'ia sent a constitution to the parliament, but the deadline has been extended by three days for more work because of Sunni objections.
