On Monday's show, perhaps you saw Rev. Ken Joseph Jr., the former "human shield" who went from protesting the Iraq war to supporting it.
We didn't get a chance to discuss it on the air, but Rev. Joseph is worried about something being discussed for the new Iraq constitution. He's concerned that the U.S. Coalition Provisional Authority is contemplating declaring the new Iraq an Islamic state. He says that, in his discussions with Iraqi citizens, he's being told this is a bad idea.
I asked Ahmed Chalabi of the Iraqi Governing Council about this. He was less concerned. He said it's only a "nominal" thing, like the country of Jordan is an Islamic state.
What do you think about this?
