Democracy in Iraq

Democratization advocates, Glenn Reynolds and Michael Ledeen both fear that the U.S. government is going to allow Iraqis to write the Iraq constitution. Ledeen: "I'm also concerned because our current ambassador, Zal Khalilzad, was previously ambassador in Afghanistan and he sat still for a constitution that called the country an 'Islamic Republic,' fulfilling the demands of the Iranians."

What can one say about people like this? It boggles the mind that mature, middle-aged, presumably good-at-what-they-do, people can be so naive.
