'Wash Post' Obtains Shocking Memo from U.S. Embassy in Baghdad

'Wash Post' Obtains Shocking Memo from U.S. Embassy in Baghdad I guess the success and improving conditions memo didn't filter down to everyone.

The Washington Post has obtained a cable, marked "sensitive," that it says shows that just before President Bush left on a surprise trip last Monday to the Green Zone in Baghdad for an upbeat assessment of the situation there, "the U.S. Embassy in Iraq painted a starkly different portrait of increasing danger and hardship faced by its Iraqi employees."
This cable outlines, the Post reported Sunday, "the daily-worsening conditions for those who live outside the heavily guarded international zone: harassment, threats and the employees' constant fears that their neighbors will discover they work for the U.S. government."
It's actually far worse than that...
So where are the bright spots? Just in the Green Zone?
