U.S. Sen. Richard Lugar (R-Ind.) seemed to warn America yesterday that we may be surprised and disappointed by the government that results from this Sunday's election in Iraq. The national assembly that will be elected this weekend is tasked with drafting a constitution for the new Iraqi state.
Lugar, chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, asked that we steel ourselves for the result. "Now, from our standpoint, the United States' standpoint, we may or may not be pleased with the final results of the constitution," he said.
