The Incoming Iraqi Government: A U.S. Puppet?

Nathan Newman writes that a feature of the new Iraqi Constitution makes sure the incoming interim government is a complete US puppet regime. President Bush has said that with the new Constitution passed, power will be turned over to Iraqis after June of this year. Nathan says it's a lie:

The new government under the new constitution will be barred from overturning any laws that the US has imposed on the country since the Occupation. Why can't they change them? Because of this provision in the Constitution, Article 26:

A) Except as otherwise provided in this Law, the laws in force in Iraq on 30 June 2004 shall remain in effect unless and until rescinded or amended by the Iraqi Transitional Government in accordance with this Law.

Nathan has a lot to say about what that means.
