Iraqi Elections? What Elections?

Can't say I blame them:

"Just one staff member is one staff member too many in Iraq," they said. "We ... appeal to your good judgment to ensure that no further staff members be sent to Iraq and that those already deployed be instructed to leave as soon as possible."

Throws Bush's and Allawi's statements that Iraq is stabilizing and will hold elections in January out with the Ba'ath water, doesn't it?
