is this thing on:
According to the director of the Iraq Reconstruction Management Office, Baghdad won't have a full 24 hours of daily electricity until 2013. Well, sort of -- to "catch up with that demand" for power should occur in six more years; he didn't say that by 2013 Baghdad would necessarily have an electrical grid capable of providing power for a full day every day. Just don't expect 24-hour service until at least a decade after the invasion of Iraq.
