Garner promises some "Iraqi faces"

Apr 28, 2003

Annoyed by Iraqi criticism of the American military control over their country, the U.S.'s new "civilian" administrator, retired General Jay Garner, proclaimed: "I think we will begin to see the governmental process start by the end of the next week and it will have Iraqi faces on it."

He said a mouthful. Because that's exactly what the U.S. intends – to cover over its colonial administration of Iraq by pasting a few Iraqi faces on it!
