They never learn...

I understand from the BBC radio news that Jay Garner, the US's administrator in Iraq, has his headquarters (or some such administrative facility) on the second floor of one of Saddam's palaces in Baghdad.

Short of annexing a mosque, I cannot think of a worse place to choose.

No matter how convenient, this choice of venue is distinctly idiotic. If I heard correctly (and I have been unable to get any confirmation of this story) this would be a decision obviously guaranteed to get up the noses of the local population. In any situation requiring sensitivity, the US inevitably behaves arbitrarily and unthinkingly and I ask the usual rhetorical question: 'Will these fucking American's never learn anything?'
