Megan passes on word from the WSJ that,

Despite chaos and casualties, confidential documents detail plans to “permanently reduce or zero-out tariffs” and prepare for talks next year to get Iraq into the World Trade Organization. U.S. administrators want to begin small-scale privatization by October and to build an “investor-friendly tax system” by January.

Cool. Maybe they can then get one going in the US?
