Iraq Presidential council gives Saddams Baathists jobs back


www.reuters.com

BAGHDAD (Reuters) - Iraq's presidency council said on Sunday a measure that would give thousands of former members of Saddam Hussein's Baath party their old jobs back had become law, finalizing a key piece of legislation sought by Washington.

But underlining divisions within the three-man council, the measure became law despite objections from Vice President Tareq al-Hashemi, a Sunni Arab member.

Parliament passed the "Accountability and Justice Law" last month, winning praise from Washington for helping promote reconciliation between majority Shi'ites and minority Sunni Arabs who were dominant under Saddam.

LOL.

Seems a little strange to give the regime who served along Saddam their jobs back after all we went through to dispose of the regime in the first place. But I guess if it calms their civil war down....?
