Is June soon enough for elections in Iraq?
Asked at Massachusetts Street on January 21, 2004
“I think it’s too early. Because of the security situation the ability of the country to put together anything that would even approach a legitimate election is impossible.”
“Yeah, it’s soon enough. The sooner we can turn that country back over to its people so they can work out their own issues, the better.”
“I think June is soon enough, but they should be direct elections and not caucuses.”
“I would have to say yes because I think the sooner the Iraqi people feel they are backing their government the more stable it will be over there.”
