CONFLICT IN IRAQ / Delegates snagged on basic issues / Some have doubts sticking points can be erased in a week

CONFLICT IN IRAQ / Delegates snagged on basic issues / Some have doubts sticking points can be erased in a week: "After granting themselves an extra week to complete a draft constitution, Iraqi leaders joined U.S. Ambassador Zalmay Khalilzad in painting the missed deadline as an opportunity, not a failure.

Despite the positive public front on Tuesday, many participants in the negotiations said deep fissures remained among Iraq's main factions on topics as fundamental to the charter as the role of Islam in determining law and the level of autonomy to be granted to regional governments."

After the civil war this is all gonna seem so silly... Really.
