The Bishop Speaks

According to the BBC, Severius Hawa, Syrian Orthodox Archbishop of Baghdad and Basra, has criticized the U.S. for their failure to restore basic services in Iraq, which he said in endangering lives. However, he praised the U.K. for their administration in Basra, as have many others. Perhaps most disturbingly, he said he was unsure whether the U.S. administration was an improvement over Saddam. Given the brutality of Saddam's regime, that's a rather serious indictment of the job we've done since the fall of Baghdad.
