OK. I know her slightly. She could encourage a lot of people to meet benchmarks.
In fact, she was one of the principal creators of the mess that is the Iraqi constitutional arrangements. she was a "biggy" during the CPA period. In charge of the "Governance Section" perhaps?
She has been running the Iraq section of the NSC staff for a couple of years and scheduled to go into the cold, hard private sector to "fend for herself."
Now, she is going back to help poor Ryan Crocker, the US Ambassador, who must need help, I guess. and to keep military people like Fallon, Petraeus and Odierno in line.
Surely, that is what this is. They actually want to negotiate with the non-jihadi insurgent enemy and our Iranian adversaries. Heavens!! Surrender monkeys!!
Well, good luck to her. It might be more difficult this time. pl
