Abstract:

Elections in 2005 produced a permanent constitution and a broad-based but Shiite-led government that has been unwilling or unable to take major steps to reduce Sunni popular resentment. That assessment generally comports with findings of a congressionally mandated P.L. 110-28, FY2007 supplemental appropriation progress report released July 12, 2007. The Iraqi government is showing significant signs of fragmentation. See CRS Report RL31339, Iraq Post-Saddam Governance and Security, by Kenneth Katzman.
