IRAQ POLLING PLACES SECRET UNTIL AFTER THE VOTE
Baghdad – In an effort to minimize the number of attacks on polling places before and during Sunday’s election, the Iraqi provisional government has announced that the location of all polling places will be kept top-secret until the day after the election.
When asked by reporters if that wouldn’t make it difficult for Iraqis to find a place to cast their ballots, a spokesman replied, “Hey, I’m just provisional. Ask the new guy on Monday!”
