The limited Iraqi reaction I have gotten so far is a stunned one… It was a very commonly held conspiracy theory that the election was fixed and there was no way a black man would win… But even so at the end of the day they don’t really give a s***… Iraqis are so disillusioned by America they don’t think this changes anything.
