Two US Generals sound off. "The generals stopped short of criticizing the policy. But their remarks on Tuesday reflect a growing anger and frustration among many senior U.S. commanders that the policy is excluding many of the skilled Iraqi professionals needed to help the country's political and economic reconstruction, especially in the restive Sunni heartland, even as U.S. officials seek to broker a transfer to Iraqi sovereignty after June 30." Commentary Analysis: "Evidence that the US plans to impose itself on future Iraqi governments is embedded in the interim constitution passed by the IGC: all laws and regulations emanating from the CPA must be recognized as valid in the future. Whether this clause is to be retained in the permanent constitution is not known. Many CPA regulations are designed to control the economy. For example, they include rules to speed the privatization of Iraq's state enterprises and property, and for the disposition of the country's petroleum resources. The CPA has also established a number of 'independent' regulators to share power in various government ministries." Casualty Reports Local story: Texas soldier killed in Iraq.
