Friday reading 

For your reading pleasure - or at least a quick perusal - a few links that might be worth checking.

If you're an Iraqi election junkie and can't get enough, for continuous coverage I suggest
Friends of Democracy, a project of the Spirit of America, which gives voice to Iraqi correspondents on the ground in just about every province of the country.

Another good site is run by the Foundation for the Defense of Democracies and it monitors Iraqi blogs and the media (often Arab-language one), as well as providing their own useful commentary.
