Iraq Constitution Update

October 16, 2005

From the Washington Post: Rice: Iraq Constitution Appears to Have Passed (link via Kevin Drum):

Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice said Sunday that initial
assessments indicate Iraqis had probably approved a controversial
constitution, although the turnout alone showed the fragile new
political process has taken hold despite a deadly insurgency.

The constituion itself isn’t perfect, but the fact that many Iraqis (and particularly more Sunnis than in the parliamentary election) see the democratic process as the path to power is a positive sign.
