Austin advises Iraq

“’They (the Iraqis) have their own system and we are working within that system with Austin leveraging their experience and processes. There are things inherent in government concepts that just work,’ he said, explaining that there are models in place within the realm of civics that are essential to the running of any government."

I’m not sure I’d call Austin’s a city government that works, much less a model, considering its perpetual problems: the police periodically shooting minorities to death, the uneven, pot-holed roads that never seem to be repaired, the two months it took us to get a replacement garbage can, despite repeated pleas, and the interminable council meetings due to all the protests of this or that. Doesn’t Iraq have enough problems already?
