Must read

Welcome to the Green Zone by William Langewiesche. It's a potted history of the Green Zone, its disconnection from Iraq, and the growth of a seige mentality within it, which manages to simultaneously be utterly scathing about the CPA's flaws (right-wing ideology, power-tripping officials, and a near-total ignorance of Iraqi society) while praising its successes.
