Iraqi Sovereignty

    <p>Actually, it took the unguarded Arab media by complete surprise, and I swear I could notice their confusion since it was very obvious that they hadn&#8217;t yet prepared anything to downplay the significance of the event.</p>

<p>I got a good laugh out of NPR&#8217;s coverage of the early hand-over of Iraqi Sovereignty. The difference between the first news report and one four hours later, when they had had time to think up some spin, was quite apparent.</p>
