Courtesy of Juan Cole, I found these brief profiles of the members of the new Iraqi Governing Council. There appear to be 25 members, rather than the 30 I reported yesterday. Some of the names are familiar, such as Iraqi National Congress leader Ahmed Chalabi and the Kurdish leaders Jalal Talabani and Massoud Barzani. Others seem to be drawn from local leadership positions involving the social services, such as Raja Habib al-Khuzaai, who headed a maternity hospital, or members of a particular constituency such as the Christian leader Younadem Kana.
