Talking Points Memo: by Joshua Micah Marshall: “In September 2003–against the provisions of the Fourth Geneva Convention that require occupying powers to respect existing laws–Bremer got the Iraqi Governing Council to issue an order privatizing state companies and abrogating Iraqi laws that prohibited private ownership of ‘national’ resources and the ‘basic means of production.’ ”
