Green Zone

That the Green Zone is no longer secure is obviously a sign of the overall deteriorating security situation in Iraq. I haven't seen much discussion of specifics though, including the impact of the situation on the January elections and on efforts to internationalize the operation. The conditions are already worrying the UN, whose involvement is critical on both issues.

Update 9:44 AM EST: Reuters says that today's "bombings have reinforced U.N. fears about sending more senior staff to Iraq to help prepare for the elections, a spokesman at U.N. headquarters in New York said."
