Afternoon Constitutional

By way of contrast, here's the Iraqi Interim Constitution, complements of The Agonist. Striking by its absence is the sort of UN-speke that was scattered throughout the Afghan Constitution.

On the other hand, more problematic than the occasional rainbows & unicorns of the Afghan document is this sentence:

Article 7 (B) Iraq is a country of many nationalities, and the Arab people in Iraq are an inseparable part of the Arab nation.

Wow. Pan-Arab nationalism, right there in the constitution? Who do we thank for that? Bremer? Chalabi? Al-Sistani?
