Who is going to want this job?

Ok - so a bomb killed the head of the Iraqi Governing Council.

In reponse, Paul Bremer said:

"The terrorists who are seeking to destroy Iraq have struck a cruel blow with this vile act today. But they will be defeated ... The Iraqi people will ensure that his vision of a democratic, free and prosperous Iraq will become a reality."
Gee, Paul, that's easy for YOU to say. You're leaving the country forever in 43 days.

You're going to hand over Iraq to whoever happens to be alive on June 30th.

A question: if the American military can't protect the head of the Iraqi Governing Council, who the hell is going to want the job once we pack up to leave?
