Analysts at Work

Will the talking head on CNN International who Monday tried to make a big deal out of the fact Iraqi interviewed on the street mentioned God a lot please resign in disgrace? The Iraqis said things like "God be praised" and "If God wills." I presume they just translated the common Arabic phrases "Alhamdalullah" and "In shaa' Allah." These are just part of the language. I say them all the time, like when someone turns on a fan or when someone asks me when I will finish my degree. They have nothing to do with people's opinions of the handover.
