Christopher Hill takes political job for Iraq

There is a slight bit of political maneuver for clarification purposes going on for Iraq. Senators Lindsey Graham and John McCain are questioning Christopher Hill’s qualifications, since he apparently lacks counterterrorism and counterinsurgency and Mideast experience.

This allowed the Democrats such as Kerry and Reid to say that Hill is taking the job because he’s good at politics.(1)

Of concern to the rulers is how they extricate themselves from Iraq while preserving what they see as the success of the “surge.”

Throwing light on DCology further, Cheney has said his two disagreements with Bush were on Scooter Libby and northern Korea.(2) Christopher Hill worked on northern Korea before moving to the Iraq job.
