Abstract

On June 28, 2004, US Administrator L. Paul Bremer formally handed over power to an interim Iraqi government. The brief ceremony, held with only a handful of participants, took place two days in advance of the official handover date because of security concerns. Iraqi's newly appointed Prime Minister Ayad Allawi and a 33-member cabinet face the daunting task of forging a new, democratic, secular Iraq.
