I saw Bush on tv last night and he was touting the wonderful debaathification that the Iraqi government just passed. Which, quite frankly, confused me. Today I read articles and apparently what Bush meant was un-debaathification (yes, I made that up). Debaathification is when the Baath party members were taken out of offices and jobs because they were Baath party members. That law has now been changed. See Juan Cole's post from today for some interesting comments about the law - especially since some of the Baathists opposed it.
