Success in Iraq

Prime Minister al-Maliki seems to be getting the hang of this democracy thing: He has his own Alberto Gonzales firing senior officers.

According to the Washington Post: “Although some of the officers appear to have been fired for legitimate reasons, such as poor performance or corruption, several were considered to be among the better Iraqi officers in the field. The dismissals have angered U.S. and Iraqi leaders who say the Shiite-led government is sabotaging the military to achieve sectarian goals.”

Didn’t they know they were serving at the pleasure of the Prime Minister?
