Um... just askin'
It's been over a month since the much heralded Iraqi election and they STILL haven't figured out who won? Are they waiting for James Baker to go over and fix it?
And of course, the almost monontonous death toll continues to rise.
Iraq's electoral commission said Monday that it is throwing out votes from 227 ballot boxes in last month's parliamentary elections because of fraud, a tiny percentage of the total vote that shouldn't greatly affect overall results.
The announcement came after a U.S. helicopter crashed north of Baghdad, but the fate of the two-man crew wasn't immediately known. A car bomb also killed six people and wounded 19 in the town of Muqdadiya.
Complaints by Sunni Arab and secular Shiite Muslim parties charging voting fraud and other irregularities have delayed announcement of final results from the Dec. 15 election, slowing negotiations on forming a new, broad-based coalition government.
