Re: Can’t They Do Anything Right?

James, this reminds me of an essay called “Why Arabs Lose Wars,” which I used to have bookmarked, but lost when I got a new computer (not hard to find). One of the commonest features of Arab organizations is that the boss does not let the underlings have, say, instruction manuals, because possession of same is a kind of power cookie. Figuring that there is a military set of instructions on hanging, and that perhaps somebody in the Iraqi government has copies, it would appear that such copies have not filtered down to the guys who actually need them.
