My prerogative:
Meet the new de-Baathification Commission, same as the old de-Baathification Commission.
Another part of the legislation that has been criticized is the makeup of the new de-Baathification body. It is the same as the old one, just with a new name.

"The fact the committee remains would be among my main concerns. It was tied to charges of corruption and politicization -- and that is likely to continue," said a U.S. diplomat who has worked in Iraq.

This is more important than what the de-Baathification law says. In case you haven't noticed, there's no rule of law in Iraq, only the prerogative of the strong. What the de-Baathification Commission says goes.
