"If ye love wealth greater than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest for freedom, go home and leave us in peace. We seek not your council nor your arms. Crouch down and lick the hand that feeds you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen." - Samuel Adams

I heard Oliver North say this was going to happen a few weeks ago. But tomorrow Iraqi opposition groups will meet in Northern Iraq. If North is right they will be drafting a constitution.

Update: There will be an American representative present at the meeting.

The visit of Zalmay Khalilzad, President Bush's special envoy to the Iraqi opposition, seemed intended to mock Saddam by demonstrating his inability to stop a lone unarmed U.S. official from crossing his border.

Khalilzad, an Afghan-born senior National Security Council official, crossed through the Khabur Gate border post with a small entourage of U.S. officials and security guards, said Iraqi opposition officials.

They were met by senior Kurdish officials, who sped them in a heavily guarded motorcade to Salahaddin, the mountaintop stronghold of Masood Barzani, the head of the Kurdistan Democratic Party, the opposition officials said.
