HERE'S A RATHER POSITIVE REPORT from Iraq. But there is some criticism:

Couvillon "loves to get too involved. He believes the people too much because he likes them," Muhammad said. "Things are too democratic here; the Marines should be ruling with a more iron hand. People come to him for help, saying they were abused when they just want a handout, and sometimes they get it."

I wonder what Robert Fisk would say?
