So Much for the Freedom Argument

It would appear that the Iraqi constitution is going to enshrine Islam "as a main source of legislation, and ban laws that contradict religious teachings".

Lovely. Sharia wins the day.

And why?

Kurds had complained that U.S. diplomats, who have insisted that women and minorities should enjoy equal rights, had conceded ground to the Islamists in order to meet Monday's deadline for passing a draft constitution in the legislature.
So it's official: there is no rationale left for the war in Iraq, except the existence of the war itself. A woman stoned for adultery isn't going care whether or not Saddam throws it.
