I just heard Zarqawi was captured..
Bremer boarded a helicopter shortly after the ceremony and later left the country aboard a military C-130 Hercules transport plane.

So "Mr Bremerman" high-tailed it out of Dodge on the fastest plane he could jump on.
If Bremer still held the reins of power when that "special UN clause" that the US had with the UN "not to be prosecuted" for war crimes should expire, then Mr Bremer would be on a ONE WAY TRIP TO THE HAGUE in a cell next to Mr Milosevic.
The very fact that the US was able to get an "exemption clause" freeing them of all responsibility for 'war crimes and crimes against humanity" from the UN in the first place is a very ugly stain on US claims to "setting a democratic example to the rest of the world..."
So much for him. Our concern should be with the carnage that man and his ilk in the White House left behind for the innocent civilians left in Iraq to clean up after Bremer's mess.
Also handing over the sovereignty like that (way too soon) shows that Mr Bush is running scared before election time, and can use the old line "we have given Sovereignty back to the Iraqis..." which is yet another lie since the interim government only has limited sovereign power over its own fate for several more years now.

Just curious if I'm the only one that sees multiple motivations...
But the second, we just came off the opening weekend of Fahrenheit 9/11... C'mon, this is what conspiracies are made of!!! Seriously, I'm not saying it's necessarilly realted to that, but it seems very interesting that on the day when everyone goes back to work and will talk with their co-workers about their weekend (for a few million americans that includes seeing F911), it happens to be the same day that, just prior to half our country's day starting, "they" take away the biggest issue that most people would have. Basically, since Iraq was turned back over, GWB is no longer such a bad guy. Why would we complain about what our government or military did, if they right their wrongs before we can start talkin'?
