This is a photo of Iraqi policemen dancing with what looks like an American gal soldier in celebration of the Iraqi parliament's approval last month of the Status of Force Agreement (SOFA) with the United States. Here is a close analysis by Chris Weigant of that same SOFA. I haven't been all the way through it yet, but from what I can tell, it sure looks as though the US has signed off on about the most disgraceful piece of paper in our history. That explains why the Iraqis are so happy. But the American? More to come.
Here is a NYT page that links to a PDF of the SOFA Security Agreement so you can the whole 18 pages yourself.
