U.N. run election in here to choose the leadership. But meanwhile there is a transition towards that leadership change. And that will be Iraqi run. It won’t be __________ run. It won’t be American run. It will be Iraqi run. And that will be a transition to something like that. Meanwhile we will preserve the law and order. We will stop the looting. We will stop the, you know . . . have marshal law ‘til the looters are out of there and then allow an Iraqi government to take over
